While watching the NBA Playoffs, I saw this New York Life commercial starring retired NBA player Rick Barry (A Top-5 Free Throw Shooter of all time – with an underhand free throws):
“Rick Barry knows a thing or two about consistency from the free-throw line. Which is why for long term financial consistency, Rick goes with New York Life. Be good at life. To learn more, visit www.newyorklife.com/about/our-strength”
The “audience” of the commercial in the commercial is an Asian American couple that doesn’t speak at all:
I’m always happy to see Asian Americans being represented in all sorts of commercials, but I’d rather they have at least a speaking part! Kind of reminds me of a State Farm commercial I had blogged about.
