What is Vault's logo?

Yesterday for lunch I had a sandwich provided by Nicole and Vault provided by Chris and Jenette. After eating pictured sandwich and drinking the contents on the pictured soda I placed the vault can on top of my computer monitor.

Soon afterwards I noticed something about the Vault logo, there was a seemingly misplaced dot under the V. But the one thing that I know about logos is that seemingly random things are actually there to make some sort of larger picture, and the picture that it makes usually has something to do with the name of the product. So with that in mind I stared at the Vault logo... and stared, and stared. And then it hit me; the Vault logo is a vault with a guy falling over it:

Now that is probably not the image that they were going for, but now, every time I see the Vault logo, I see the guy falling over a vault. Well, at least I can see why the dot is there now. Does anybody else know why that dot is under the V? ...Well I guess it could also be a guy doing a face plant with the V being his arms and the A is his back and legs... I still don't think that is what they were going for.

As I sit here drinking a Vault Zero (which I highly disrecommend. Is that a word? If not, it is now) and was staring at the logo, and I saw it more as a gymnastics kind of vault.. with the pommel horse, etc... where the gymnast runs up the "track" and bounces off of the trampoline vaulty thing (the circle) and the A is the pommel horse. The V... is what apparently ran and hit the trampoline... vaulting over the A. But it was before it made it over, because that would then be called Avult. Or... depending on the distance it goes.. it might be Auvlt, or maybe even Aulvt.
