However, not all havoc is positive. When it comes to real life, people are surprised all the time by things out of their control. That’s where insurance companies like Allstate step in.

Allstate struck gold with its idea of a personified version of “mayhem” in its commercials. Dean Winters stars as the disheveled actor that constantly shows up and creates chaos, causing destruction everywhere.

A number of different promotions have been created with Winters and the concept of mayhem coming to life, giving the company its infamous slogan, “You can save money and be protected from mayhem — like me.”

In the latest Allstate commercial, Bird stars in the 30-second advertisement as himself, while Winters is representing a bird in the attic. The NBA legend tries to corral the bird, but he ends up doing more damage than good. He hits his head on the ceiling boards and ends up falling through the flooring.
