I'm ESXi and I know it

General availability for version 3.0 of the Splunk App For VMware was a big deal.

This slogan, and “Bringing ESXi back,” both referring to the current version of VMWare’s Hypervisor were coined by Irina Ozernoy, and approved by Steve Sommer on 6 Aug 2013. Ultimately this slogan won out, and was printed for their debut at the VMWorld 2013 conference.

While this shirt was widely distributed, another slogan, Possibly the best ESX ever, was also approved and printed, but in much smaller quantities.
