It's a series of State Farm ads, with the basketball players as a TV-sitcom family called The Hoopers. The friendly neighbor is a State Farm agent (wearing a red shirt and, probably, khakis just like Jake).

Unlike you, I knew what the advertiser was right away - but I had no idea who the basketball players were until they ran an "opening credits" version that listed them all (including "State Farm Agent as The Neighbor").
