Ben Affleck loves his Dunkin’ coffee so much, he’s serving it too. The Deep Water actor has long been the subject of viral memes juggling Dunkin’ coffees. On Tuesday (January 10), Affleck surprised fans when taking orders at one of the chain’s Boston-area locations in Medford, Massachusetts.
In several photos captured by fans shared to social media, Affleck, 50, was seen sporting the full employee uniform: A brown “America runs on Dunkin” tee, matching visor, and to complete the look, a drive-thru headset. One fan shared a picture on Instagram of Affleck on the job, thanking him and his wife, Jennifer Lopez, “for my coffee this morning.” Mackey also described Affleck as “quick-witted and nice” to NBC10 Boston and said she was told by crew members that they were filming a commercial. While Dunkin’ hasn’t officially commented on Affleck’s appearance, the company shared an ominous tweet, an eye emoji, that same day.
A Twitter user shared a video of Affleck playing barista and serving coffee to Lopez, 53, who donned a white, puffer winter coat. In the video, he thanked the Dunkin’ employees and gave them a little motivational push. He said, “Now, listen, when I come back here, I don’t want to be in 16th place. I want to at least be ahead of Jumpster Street and Texboro. That’s our goal.” As he smiles, Lopez is laughing at her husband’s joke that did actually seem serious.
Other fans used the opportunity to create more memes of Affleck’s love of Dunkin’, which began when a viral photo of him in 2020 showed him dropping an order of drinks outside his home.
“No one has ever seen Ben Affleck smile this hard in Hollywood. Man needs to quit his job and start picking up shifts at Dunkin’,” one user wrote. Another meme joked that “Justice runs on Dunkin’,” with a photoshopped image of Affleck sporting the Batman mask.
“POV: Ben Affleck is handing me my medium cold brew with one cream and one pump pumpkin at a suburban Dunkin,” one user hilariously tweeted. Another wrote: “idk how to explain it but working at a dunkin seems so natural to him like i wouldn’t have even noticed this was ben affleck.”
