A dust-up with security at one of Abu Dhabi's swishest hotels. "No pictures!" says the heavy, who's just clocked photographer Glenn Dunbar's lights-and-tripod set-up, carefully arranged to create the images you see on this page.
Our man (dark shades, dark suit, no smile) is clearly not biddable, so we use that old Formula 1 trick: a flash of the hard card and the off-loading of a few 'name-drop' bombs. "This shoot is with a Formula 1 team boss - Christian Horner. You know, he's in charge of Red Bull. Abu Dhabi Grand Prix? Formula 1? Bernie Ecclestone?"
A crack in the edifice. A mumble into the wrist-mounted comms-link.
