WATCH: Ben Affleck Works Drive-Thru at Massachusetts Dunkin as J-Lo Looks on
Pro tip, New Englanders: if you can get so famous that the paparazzi continuously photographs you leaning down to pick up your Dunkin every morning, you, too, could star in one of its ads.
Case in point: Ben Affleck, back in the Boston area, reportedly shooting a new round of ads for everyone’s favorite breakfast stop. Amid rumors of shoots in Revere, an Instagram user posted a photo of Affleck handing her an order in nearby Medford.
Affleck has gone viral on numerous occasions for his early morning Dunkin deliveries at his home in California. Many have been turned into memes, but Affleck doesn’t care.
And why should he? While most New England towns have a Dunkin’s every other block, it’s not yet the case in California. In fact, many, such as Affleck, had to go decades before the chain finally hit the West Coast in 2015.
And when they did, they went big time.
Friends visiting the new Dunkins in Santa Monica reported lines wrapped around the corner. When I went on a Wednesday at 3 p.m., I had to wait for about 20 minutes.
But it was worth it. It’s always worth it. Look at this picture I took of the Santa Monica Dunkin Donuts. It’s like a mirage...
Affleck’s wife, Jennifer Lopez, is also said to be in Massachusetts to watch production, according to Yahoo Entertainment.
A Twitter user posted this video of Affleck wrapping up, where he is greeted by Lopez.
He's good - but nobody can match Dunkin's original spokesman.
But Ben isn’t the first in his family to star in a Dunkin “commercial.” In 2017, his brother Casey starred in this “Saturday Night Live” parody featuring “actual” New Englanders.
TMZ speculated that the ad may debut during the Super Bowl.
