His trademark nicknames actually started by accident. According to him,
he and his buddies used to drink what they called "Frank Tanana
Daquiris", and one day on camera, when he mentioned Frank Tanana, he
ended up saying Frank Tanana Daquiri without even thinking about it.
This caused the technical director to shout "What?!" in his ear, and
one of the camera men starting laughing so hard he was actually shaking
the camera up and down.
