State Farm wants you to be a specific, but dedicated, Cavs fan

A new State Farm ad stresses the importance of being specific when describing yourself as a Cavaliers fan.

Normally the word I'd use is "defensive" as in "No, I was a fan of the Cavs long before LeBron and I'm a fan after, so leave me alone you new-Miami fan-bandwagon-jumper-jackass." And that's just when someone asks me what time the next bus is coming.

I guess we can be glad this guy didn't say he was a Vikings, Lumberjack, or Jaguars fan. And I know State Farm is not putting an ad together for some stereotypical Native American themed team.
