During a presentation to announce Symantec's latest product, a spokesman for the company delivered an enthusiastic pitch to a roomful of big name clients. Indeed, such was the emphasis on the "uniqueness" of his company's offering that attendees could have been forgiven for thinking that no one else made anti-virus software.
Thankfully, visual aids were on hand to gently remind all present that "unique" in the marketing world should generally be accompanied by a "quite", or more accurately a "not".
During the wrap-up to his presentation, the spokesman was forced to query collective laughs, and quite possibly shouts of "it's behind you", by turning to face his presentation screen.
He found the source of their amusement in the form of a prominent pop-up box, obscuring his Powerpoint presentation, stating that the rival Kaspersky anti-virus software loaded on the machine he was using to present had updated its definitions.

Hopefully Eugene would not allow Symantec past the front door, so it won't happen there.
Edit: Has to pass this on to the crowd at DSLR. What a chuckle, caught with your pants down.
