The Cleveland Cavaliers showed the promo above during Wednesday night’s playoff game against the Chicago Bulls. Cavs promo

Deadspin reported the video has since been removed from the NBA team’s Vimeo page.

The video is a parody of a United HealthCare ad, which features an older couple attempting (and failing) to complete “the jump” from Dirty Dancing as (I’ve Had) The Time of My Life plays in the background.

In the video the Cavs fan catches his girlfriend and throws her to the ground after he learns she is a Bulls fan.

She is then seen in pain on the floor.

To end the ad, the couple is sitting on the couch, now both Cavs fans, the girlfriend holding an ice pack on her head.
