“Daddy, where do assists come from?” is the question that gets the ball rolling in this year’s Christmas Day State Farm commercial. Chris and Cliff Paul, the basketball player’s identical twin in the commercial, are playing Scrabble with their sons, Chris Paul II times two, when the little ones ask where the term, “assists” comes from. Chris and Cliff look at one another right before deciding to take little Chris and Cliff to the family’s photo album. Therein little and big Chris, along with their twins, discover that assists come from their great, great grandfather who convinced State Farm agents to help customers through the rough spots of life. Chris Paul “Senior Senior” also revolutionized the game of basketball by teaching players to pass the ball and score big. The commercial closes with Chris Paul Jr., and his twin, fighting over a ship, challenging the idea of caring and sharing being in the family’s genes.
