The dynamic duo of Ben Affleck and Jennifer Lopez have been making headlines ever since their surprise wedding in 2022. Now, the two are teaming up again in a collaboration with Dunkin’ Donuts. This multi-million dollar deal will include a donation to the Eastern Congo Initiative, a non-profit organization founded by actress and politician Whitney Williams in 2010. It is rumored that Ben will star in a television commercial for Dunkin’ that will air during the upcoming Super Bowl.
The commercial will be a hidden camera ad, and will likely draw heavily on Ben’s Boston roots and Dunkin’ Donuts’ New England roots. Ben’s brother, Casey, starred in a hilarious parody of a Saturday Night Live commercial for Dunkin’ in 2016. Fans can only speculate as to what Ben’s commercial will look like.
The couple have more productions planned in the coming year. J.Lo’s new film “Shotgun Wedding” will be released on Amazon on January 27th, and Affleck will return as Batman in “The Flash” on June 16th. The collaboration between Ben and JLo and Dunkin’ Donuts is sure to be one of the most talked about Super Bowl commercials of the year. It will be interesting to see how this dynamic duo combine their talents to create something truly unique.
Batman and Robin. Biscuits and gravy. Hammer and nails. Ben Affleck and Dunkin’ Donuts. What does this seemingly random list of paired things have in common? These are elements that are synonymous with each other and it would be hard to imagine them not fitting together. Many of us have seen the infamous Affleck memes showing a tired Ben carrying an order from Dunkin’ and countless paparazzi images of a man just going about his day trying to enjoy his favorite drink. Well, after the Daredevil actor was spotted working and serving his wife JLo at one of the chain’s donut shops and cafes, word has it that he’s turned his love for the brand into a very lucrative deal. Well, details about the collaboration have surfaced, and significant ones at that.
An inside source told ET Online that “Phantoms” The superstar is said to have signed a “multi-million dollar” deal with Dunkin’ that will include a donation to the Eastern Congo Initiative. It is an American non-profit organization that actress and politician Whitney Williams founded in 2010. The organization provides development grants and supports community development initiatives in the Democratic Republic of the Congo internationally.
Ben Affleck’s recent appearance at the auto show is rumored to be tied to a TV commercial that will air during this year’s Super Bowl. That’s probably why JLo was spotted at the event. A source close to ET says the ad, in which Affleck is seen at work, is the only idea for “Jersey Girl.” A source told ET:
Ben he had it all planned out and wanted something like a hidden camera ad.
It looks like the Surviving Christmas actor not only knows his way around the set, but he also knows how to turn an internet meme into a decent paycheck.
The relationship timeline of Bennifer 2.0 (who unexpectedly got married in Vegas in 2022) is exaggerated. So fans will probably be happy to see the couple working together on screen as they haven’t done so in over two decades. Fingers crossed that this team-up of two megastars goes down as one of the best Super Bowl commercials of the year and not a rehash of their disastrous last collaboration, Gigli.
ironically, Ben Affleck isn’t the only one to star in the network’s ad. In 2016, the “Man About Town” actor’s younger brother, Casey, starred in a hilarious parody of a Saturday Night Live commercial. The main joke is the loyalty of its Boston patrons, which makes sense because Dunkin’ Donuts hails from Massachusetts. We can only speculate whether Ben’s planned ad will draw as heavily on his roots and the brand’s New England roots as it does on his brother’s parody. You can check out the short SNL sketch below:
I’ll be looking forward to seeing what Ben Affleck and Jennifer Lopez do in their claimed Dunkin’ Donuts ad. And of course, they have more productions planned as the couple are very busy. J.Lo’s new film “Shotgun Wedding” will be released on Amazon on January 27th, and Affleck will return as Batman in “The Flash” on June 16th. In the meantime, check out the 2023 movie release schedule to plan trips to the theaters in the new year.
