* A radio spot for the (American-owned) chain of Japanese cuisine/teppanyaki restaurants known as Benihana, features a customer coming in and asking to speak to Mr. Hana.

As a result, it has always been assumed that the Smith Brothers' names were Trade and Mark. Their names were actually William (Trade) and Andrew (Mark).
