Frank the Tank meets ‘Frank the Tank’

Frank Kaminsky often goes by the moniker “Frank the Tank.” But on Tuesday, he got to meet the man who made the phrase famous in the first place.

Kaminsky met actor Will Ferrell while he was in Los Angeles preparing for the NCAA West Regional final.

One of Ferrell’s most famous roles was in the movie “Old School,” where his character was nicknamed”Frank the Tank.”

“This is by far the coolest thing I’ve done,” Kaminsky said on his Twitter account. “Got to meet Will Ferrell and John C. Reilly, and interviewed Will for ‘Access Hollywood.’

Kaminsky got his nickname for his relentless drive to the basket. Ferrell’s character got the nickname for … other reasons.

Ferrell is in Los Angeles promoting his new movie “Get Hard” with actor Kevin Hart, which opens Friday.
