Chris Paul is again the face of a State Farm advertising campaign, but this time he stars alongside a few fellow NBA players. 

Paul, Kevin Garnett, DeAndre Jordan, Kevin Love and Damian Lillard portray the Hoopers, an “all–star family.” 

Each NBA star plays a different role in the family: Paul is the father, Garnett is the grandfather, Love is the teenage son, Lillard is the baby and Jordan is the mother, complete with a blonde wig. 

The new ad campaign debuted on Christmas Day. In the first spot, viewers are introduced to the family.

In “Robbed,” Mrs. Hooper (DeAndre Jordan) frets that the family has been burglarized.


In “Hawks and Hornets,” Mr. Hooper (Chris Paul) tries to sit down with his son (Kevin Love) to have “the talk.”
