The Super Bowl is a spectacle beyond just what occurs on the pitch. The famous halftime show and the commercials that air during the annual sporting event have also entered the pop culture discussion, with this year being no different.
This year’s standout commercial was one by Dunkin, which featured the celebrity power couple Ben Affleck and Jennifer Lopez.
In the ad, Affleck plays the role of an employee at the food chain, serving customers their meals. At one point during the commercial, J-Lo makes an appearance and argues with her husband.
“What are you doing? Is that what you do when you say you’re going to work all day?” Lopez asked Affleck in the ad.
Affleck has had a long affinity for Dunkin Donuts
The actor admitted that he has loved the chain from childhood and the commercial represented a fun opportunity for him to play on that affinity.
“I think people already sort of think that I work for Dunkin,” Affleck told People.
“In Boston, it was such a big deal. I think I became kind of associated with it, and this sounded like a fun opportunity to kind of play with that association, and a chance to come back here to shoot it at home in Boston.
“This was the place that as I grew up, like playing Little League, after the games, everybody would go to Dunkin’ and get munchkins, get coffee. It was like the thing that everybody did.”
What do Ben Affleck and Jennifer Lopez order at Dunkin Donuts?
Affleck also revealed what he tends to order when he goes to Dunkin.
“It’s just iced coffee, milk and two sugars, sometimes Splenda,” he told People.
“I do sometimes have to admit to using almond milk, but if you really want to know, sometimes I forget.”
As for J-Lo, she asked for a glazed donut during the commercial, which was a huge hit as fans enjoyed the way that the couple had fun and laughed at some of their stereotypes.
