Talk about easy money! You know how they say, “you never work a day when you do what you love?” Well, that was especially true for Ben Affleck this week as he shot a commercial in his hometown of Boston with the love of his life, Dunkin’ Donuts, while his wife, Jennifer Lopez, cheered him on. TMZ reports that Ben was spotted on Tuesday “dressed in an employee’s uniform and hamming it up for cameras out of the drive-thru window.”
So scratch that, Ben might actually love hamming it up for the cameras more than he loves Dunkin, so that’s the two greatest loves of his life, plus Jennifer Lopez, who was also there. TMZ adds that Ben may have been shooting a Super Bowl commercial for Dunkin’.
Jennifer Lopez was seen headed through the drive-thru and getting food from Ben.
Ben Affleck may be headed to a Super Bowl commercial near you — because he’s teamed up with the one company that’s the apple of his eye … or the pastry of his java, rather.
All signs point to this being a major ad … and the speculation is that it might show up on game day, although there’s no confirmation of that just yet. We wouldn’t be surprised though.
Of course, this is a big deal because Ben is essentially an ambassador for the coffee chain — time and again, he’s seen in and around L.A. with a bunch of Dunkin’ products … so, frankly, it was just a matter of time before a collab came around. It’s a match made in heaven.
TMZ says Ben was interacting with “fake customers” in the drive-thru, but it looks like a few lucky Bostonians had their coffee handed to them by, if not The Batman, by an actor who has unquestionably played a Batman in the past. The Batman would totally do something like this too but not for the money. And he’d do it in full Bat-drag. And everybody would get a free microwavable hand pasta with their order.
Man, is there anything better than true love? Every woman deserves a man who looks at her the way Ben looks at the orders on the screen at Dunkin’.
