State Farm Brings Us Chris Paul Singing Along To “I Want It That Way”

When Chris Paul left the Los Angeles Clippers for the Houston Rockets, he unfortunately also had to leave his long-time State Farm agent, Cliff. As a last assist, Cliff gave him the card for a new agent, Cole Perez. As this new State Farm spot starts, we see Cole (played by Oscar Nunez) showing Chris around Houston. They go bowling. They eat chili fries. When the iconic Backstreet Boys tune “I Want It That Way” comes on the radio, they enthusiastically sing along. Then, they run into two of Chris’ new teammates, James Harden and Trevor Ariza. Seems that James has some car trouble. After picking them up, Harden is still concerned about his vehicle, while Trevor gets in on the karaoke act…quite poorly. Haha. And one of the best parts of the ad is that according to this Adweek article, everyone knew the words to “I Want It That Way.”
