A hostile business takeover advantage

It would be interesting to bring a vampire (a person in costume, of course) to a business takeover negotiation meeting, just standing in the corner with fangs and a cape, looking menacing. It will either intimidate the other guys or make you an object of ridicule. Either way, it would shake things up a bit.

PS - Whether the change goes in your favour or not remains to be seen.
PPS - And I think you'd have to play it pretty straight.

I'm glad you added the 'person in costume' part of that.

You know how I feel about vampires.

I think that negotiations would go well for the other side if they did that to me.

I guess whenever attempting something like this, there's a chance you'll hit some kind of button that will make things go extraordinarily well. However, there's a similar and opposite risk that things will go horribly wrong, too.

That might go great as an April Fool's prank.

"So, guys - what's with the vampire?"
"What vampire?"

"That one behind you!"

"I don't know what you're talking about. Can we get down to business now?"
