Hyundai "Handshake" Logo Meaning

It's been talked about a lot, and many people speculate. But does the Hyundai logo have a hidden meaning. What you see is the letter H inside an oval. The "H" represents a car dealer and new car owner shaking hands after a successful deal. It's supposed to symbolise trust and happiness between buyer and seller. However, some people speculate that the logo could have hidden sexual undertones due to the positioning of the hands etc. And if looked at with that in mind, it is understandable how some people have come to that conclusion from seeing the picture that depicts the two men in full detail, rather than just the outline as featured below.

But sometimes people see what they want to see. It's the same as when a person looks at something and can see a face. Lets say a curtain pattern. The face isn't really there, but the individual mind has made it appear as if there is a face. And now, every time they look at the curtain, or in this case the Hyundai Logo, they see what they have programmed themselves to see.

It's now always interpreted as what their mind has made it become. There is a name for this. It's called Pareidolia. So technically yes, it does have a hidden meaning, as in the letter H represents two men shaking hands. And yes, the image can look a little off with how the designers have positioned the hands. But I don't think it was intentional.
