As part of the annual Christmas Day NBA action, State Farm will release another ad featuring Los Angeles Clippers star guard Chris Paul and his fictional twin brother, Cliff.
The ads featuring Paul have become a hilarious staple of the insurance company in the last couple years. You can see Paul’s charisma shine through playing both characters as these continuously become a hit.
This time, the Pauls take a look into the history of the assist as it pertains to their family.
Only this time, there is another Paul involved.
Chris Paul’s son, Chris Jr., partakes in this one, playing the son of both Chris and Cliff as they look into the heritage of their family.
That was a fantastic job done by the little man getting his face in front of the camera like that.
State Farm also released a statement regarding the ad:
“Heritage of the Assist,” which will debut during the NBA games on Christmas Day, tells the story of the ancestors of Chris and Cliff Paul and will introduce two new characters: Lil’ Chris and Lil’ Cliff, both played by Chris Paul Jr. (see attached image). At the request of the youngest Pauls, Chris and Cliff delve deep into their lineage to answer the question, “Where do assists come from?”
The story begins in 1922, the year State Farm was founded, with Clifford Paul Sr. Sr. Sr. a store owner that inspires his next door neighbor, a State Farm agent, to be there for customers “like a good neighbor.” At the time, Christopher Paul Sr. Sr. Sr. is revolutionizing the game of basketball by suggesting that players pass the ball to other players.
