Default Is Cliff Paul real?

I saw a Statefarm commercial that alleged Chris Paul had an identical twin who was a state farm agent named Cliff. I find it hard to believe... if they were separated at birth then why would his last name also be Paul? It seems a little too convenient to me that Chris Paul would have this separated at birth identical twin AND that he was a Statefarm agent (Statefarm sponsoring the NBA and all). Does Cliff Paul really exist or is this some really elaborate ruse?

That's uncanny! Does he ball too? If so some team should give him a try out.

Sorry, I knew it was a stupid question. It's illegal to make up things in commercials, especially making up a human being.

Picture says his name is Keith B. Not sure I believe you... the odds of two NBA stars with identical twins (both black and holding a steady job) seems unlikely.

There is no such person as Cliff Paul, it's a marketing program


Edit. Here you go.

Most casual sports fans know of star Los Angeles Clippers point guard Chris Paul, but have you heard of his twin brother Cliff?

Cliff Paul is the creation of a clever and wildly popular State Farm ad campaign that launched in December. Chris and Cliff, the story goes, were separated at birth, but share the same genetic predisposition to helping others. While Chris famously hands out assists on the NBA hardwood, Cliff hands out assists to motorists as a State Farm agent.

On August 23, 1978, two twins were seperated at birth.

Coby Bryant was destined to be a construction worker.
Kobe Bryant was destined to be a basketball player.

Together they were both born to be brick layers.
