Footage of Jennifer Lopez and her husband Ben Affleck inside a Boston-area Dunkin’ (formerly Dunkin’ Donuts) spread across social media Tuesday (January 10). Affleck was at the popular coffee and donut chain to apparently shoot a commercial.
Some immediately speculated that Affleck was shooting a commercial for the Super Bowl next month. And JLo was dragged along because sometimes you have to weather your partner’s obsessions. Even if coffee and donut related.
“Ben is heavily involved in the commercial as he pitched the script, is directing and starring in it,” a source told Entertainment Tonight. “Ben has loved Dunkin’ for years and this partnership couldn’t be more perfect. He’s been very hands-on with the whole process and is excited for everyone to see.”
During the shoot, Affleck was seen dressed in a Dunkin’ shirt and visor and a pair of headphones, so that he could take drive-thru orders.
In one video, Affleck can be seen handing a drink to JLo, who was sitting in her vehicle at the drive-thru window. He then leaned out the window and gave Lopez his visor, so she could try it on.
We’re not sure if JLo took any orders herself, but we can hope because it would be a strange moment indeed. Also, imagine coming up to the window and seeing JLo giving you your order? You’ll wonder if you’re in a fever dream.
Last year, some people even suggested that Affleck and JLo should collaborate with Dunkin’ on a Super Bowl commercial since he was such a fan of the chain. They even made up a story about JLo giving in and falling for the place as much as her husband.
Jennifer Lopez is no stranger to Super Bowl Commercials as in 2020 she did one for Hard Rock where she chased down a thief that stole her prized cup. The reveal…was unexpected to say the least.
Plus, there’s the fact that she co-headlined the halftime show with Shakira in what she said was, “the worst idea in the world” as both her and Shakira were superstars in their own right that deserved their own shows.
