KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Andy Reid probably doesn’t have much of an acting future, but Patrick Mahomes liked the work the Kansas City Chiefs coach did in his latest State Farm commercial.
“I let State Farm ask him first because I was scared,” Mahomes said. “When they asked him, he kind of came up to me and asked me if I wanted him to do it. Obviously I did it because I know how much personality he has. …People don’t see it. You see the coach. You don’t see how funny he is.
“When I got there he actually had to start before me and then I came in and I mean he did a great job. I think he stole the show and I’m just trying to hold on to my State Farm partnership now [because] he was really good.”
In the commercial, Reid draws mustaches on the players with a pen while they sleep on a team flight. Mahomes approaches Reid with a handlebar mustache pulled on him and complains, “Coach, it’s happened again.”
Pen in hand, Reid replies, “I’ll get to the bottom of it.”
“It was a fun thing,” Reid said. “It was good to see how people treat Pat. It was interesting for me to see how this production is going. He does a lot of these things and it literally gave me a glimpse to see what he has to go through to bring all of this together.
“It’s quite interesting – there were great people involved. They obviously reached out and talked to me about it, even though they knew I wasn’t really comfortable with things like that, but they made it as comfortable as possible.”
