While only his surname is spoken in the original Japanese version of the film, John Beck's English cut of King Kong vs. Godzilla reveals Tako's given name as Yoshio. Since his surname is a homophone with the Japanese word for octopus (タコ, Furue mistakenly assumes tako)Sakurai is actually referring to Tako while alerting him about the Giant Octopus.
Tako was the advertising department director of Pacific Pharmaceuticals, who attempted to boost ratings on their television program by mounting an expedition to Faro Island to capture footage of the island's monster. On watching news footage of Godzilla, he decided to capture the Faro Island monster and bring it back.
