Chambers, Benioff meet ‘In the way guy’

Tech execs become part of meme

As with so many memes these days, "In the way guy" was born on Reddit. A Disney World staffer posted a picture of ITWG ruining the staffer's attempt to photograph a man on bended knee proposing to his girlfriend. That pic spawned imitators featuring just about every famous photo you can name.

And a couple of high-profile tech industry leaders, as well.

First up we have John Chambers and "In the way guy" as tweeted from  the Cisco Channels Twitter account a few hours ago:

And then there's Salesforce CEO Marc Benioff as depicted by the Ring Lead Blog:
