I think you really hit the nail on the head with that analogy.

Truly awesome stuff.
It keeps looking better, as if it wasn't amazing enough already :-)

We create a sample database so we can demonstrate our management tools to
potential clients.  Say, we put "John Smith" as one of the people in the
database and have him work at "ACME Inc.".  Now there are certain clients
you go to who no matter how many times you tell them that it's just
sample/demo data will see "John Smith" and say "that's not right!  I know
John, he doesn't work at ACME, he works down the road at Fred's place".  And
you've lost them, because instead of appraising the technology, they just
sit there thinking how silly you were getting John's place of work
