Have you ever wanted to stick your face into a cardboard box covered in beer logos? Well, the Cavaliers have just the thing for you. 

For Game 2 of the Cavs’ series against the Hawks on Wednesday, 750 fans will receive virtual reality headsets that double as beer holders.

According to Forbes, fans at the game (presumably with VR-enabled Samsung phones) will be able to view peripheral scenes from the game through their cup holder. VR videos will include the National Anthem and a tour of the team’s practice facility. 

They can use it like this.
