The NBA 2K series has been full of various product placement over the years, but NBA 2K22 may have one of the best, yet also most shameless to date with the inclusion of Kevin Miles, also known as Jake from State Farm.

NBA 2K22 has plenty of product placement found throughout, whether it’s brands like Gatorade and Mountain Dew or different apparel and shoe brands.

Having Jake from State Farm as played by Kevin Miles has to be one of the most surprising tie-ins to date though, as you wouldn’t think you’d have an insurance advertisement in the game.

Who is Kevin Miles?

Jake from State Farm dates back to 2011 in a commercial where a man is speaking on the phone late at night when his wife catches him. She asks who he is on the phone with, prompting him to answer “Jake from State Farm.” The wife gets on the phone and asks what “Jake from State Farm” is wearing, in which it cuts to a guy who really is a State Farm representative on the other end responding with “khakis.”

This ad was everywhere back then and led to additional commercials starring the real “Jake from State Farm,” who actually did work for State Farm and just happened to be used in the commercials.

The ads eventually died off until earlier this year when they brought the character back, this time played by an actor named Kevin Miles. His first ad made its debut during the Super Bowl, which quickly blew up. Since that time, the character played by Kevin Miles has appeared in many subsequent ads and now is in NBA 2K22 as well.
