Ben Affleck is a proud advocate for a few things — his home state of Massachusetts, the art of filmmaking, his wife, Jennifer Lopez and perhaps most importantly, the chain coffee house that keeps him going: Dunkin’.
The Oscar-winning actor’s love for America’s favorite coffee not only became one of the internet’s favorite memes, but it scored him a brand deal and he has delivered many hilarious commercials in his stint as the face of Dunkin’.
As we gear up for the Super Bowl — and cross our fingers for another side-splitting spot from the caffeine-loving star — check out all of Ben Affleck’s past hilarious clips for Dunkin’ Donuts, where he makes fun of himself, goes back to Boston, enlists celebrities including Lopez and Jack Harlow, and puts his Massachusetts accent on full display.
Workin’ the Drive-Thru
Affleck stepped away from his roles as actor, director and writer and picked up a shift as a drive-thru employee for the franchise in this hilarious commercial. One problem though: He didn’t tell his wife Jennifer Lopez what he meant when he said he was “going to work all day.”
Communing with the People
In this clip captured by Entertainment Tonight, we see outtakes from his drive-thru commercial where his Boston accent is thick as ever as he jokes around with Dunkin’ customers in Medford, Massachusetts.
Meeting the New Kid on the Block
After being promoted to brand ambassador, Affleck has to deal with the fact that Dunkin’ wants him to meet with another potential ambassador — Ice Spice.
A Collision of Two Worlds
In this commercial, the dedicated brand ambassador taps Ice Spice to help him “come up with a [new] drink name, but it’s not easy.” And while it seems the name of the drink is super obvious given the rapper’s name and the fact that her fan base is called the Munchkins, Affleck is not thoroughly convinced.
Ben’s Aha Moment
In his third collaboration with the “Barbie World” rapper, Affleck gets a clearer picture as to why Ice Spice is also a perfect brand ambassador.
The Wrong Identity
With two Oscars, two BAFTAs, three Golden Globes and dozens of movies under his belt – not to mention some truly iconic photos of himself with Dunkin’ in hand — one would think Ben would be impossible to miss while picking up his coffee order. Unfortunately, his best friend Matt Damon also legendarily comes from the same hometown, so the counter staff is a little confused.
This Is Him Now
In a new ad that aired during the 2024 Grammys, Affleck addresses those “Sad Affleck memes” that originated at last year’s show. Turns out, he’s merely watching and studying the life of a pop star as he plans to become a Dunkin’ fueled crossover musician.
In this short clip, Affleck enlists the help of Charli D’Amelio who, unfortunately, has no idea why or how he is influential.
In this short, standalone video, the actor shows off his rap skills. You be the judge.
Self-Awareness Is the Best Awareness
Jack Harlow tries to hint that perhaps the voice deterring Ben from his pursuits of pop stardom might actually be his voice of reason. Proving that he might be the most self-aware person around, the Argo actor responds, “Nah. I don’t have that voice, believe me.”
