Ben Affleck Is a Passionate Dunkin’ Employee in Hilarious Super Bowl Commercial
Ben Affleck is about to become Dunkin’s employee of the year.
At last, the Dunkin’ commercial starring Ben Affleck as one of the doughnut franchise’s employees has finally aired during the Super Bowl. In the 30-second clip, the actor fields orders from real-life customers through a headset while working in a drive-thru in Medford, Masachussetts.
“Hello, welcome to Dunkin’,” he says at the start of the ad. “How can it be this inexpensive and good?”
Throughout, he has hilarious interactions with customers, who are seemingly surprised to find the Gone Girl star at the register.
“One second, I’m trying to find the bagels,” he tells a customer at one point while furiously tapping away at the cashier screen. Later, he asks an unimpressed customer, “Do I look familiar?” The guest responds, “No.”
The last car to pull up in the drive-thru is driven by Jennifer Lopez, who looks shocked to find her husband behind the counter. “What are you doing here? Is this what you do when you say you’re going to work all day?” she tells him.
“I gotta go guys,” Affleck tells his fellow coworkers.
Lopez quickly interjects, “Grab me a glazed.”

Dunkin’ ‘Drive-Thru’ Starring Ben
Reports that Affleck and Lopez would be starring in a Dunkin’ advertisement first emerged after the two were spotted at one of the doughnut franchise’s local storefronts in Massachusetts last month. Fans captured photos and videos of Affleck, who served up coffee in a drive-thru while decked out in his very own Dunkin’ uniform. Lopez cut a more stylish figure, sipping on her own iced coffee while wearing a white puffer jacket and turtleneck.
A patron named Lisa Mackay talked to NBC10 Boston about her customer service experience with Affleck, describing him as “incredibly funny and quick-witted” while he handed over her order.
The company later confirmed that the stunt was for a Super Bowl commercial earlier this month, when they posted a teaser on Instagram. Over a clip of creamer splashing into an iced coffee cup, bold orange text appeared: “Something’s Ben brewing.”
