The new Dunkin‘ commercial, which debuted on September 12 during the MTV VMAs, features the Oscar-winning actor and rap sensation Ice Spice.
Affleck, a devoted fan of Dunkin’ who grew up in Massachusetts, appears in the commercial while promoting the brand-new Ice Spice Munchkins Drink.
“Things with Dunkin’ are going well. Big promotion. Made me brand ambassador,” he says while walking with a Dunkin’ drink.
He then sits down with Ice Spice to come up with drink names.
“How are people going to connect you with Dunkin’?” he asks.
“I’m a Dunkin’ girl,” the “Barbie World” singer says.
“I’m not seeing it,” he responds.
“Ice Spice. My fans are the munchkins,” she says, prompting Affleck to ask what she meant.
“Ice Spice Munchkins drink,” she replies.
Affleck seemed to dismiss the notion and advises working together.
“We’ll call it Vanilla Ice spice,” he says before launching into a lame, albeit, brief rap that leaves Ice Spice speechless.
You might be curious as to why Affleck and Ice Spice joined forces.
Dunkin’ has blended two of its delicacies into a single seasonal beverage for the first time.
“Pumpkin spice season has gotten a bit predictable lately, so we sought help from our friends Ben Affleck and Ice Spice to create a new pumpkin obsession that only Dunkin’ can offer,” Dunkin’ chief marketing officer Jill McVicar Nelson said in a statement, as part of a press release, calling the new offering “not your ordinary pumpkin drink!”
“I’ve always been a Dunkin’ girl!” Ice Spice said in a statement included in the release, continuing on to say that there’s “a little something in the name” for her fans as well.
The most recent venture between Affleck and Dunkin’ is this ad.
The actor took part in a Super Bowl commercial in February, and in an April commercial, he enjoyed himself by being mistaken for his friend Matt Damon.
Affleck has three children with ex-wife Jennifer Garner: Violet, 17, Seraphina, 14, and Samuel, 11; he was seen in January working at a Dunkin’ drive-thru with his wife Jennifer Lopez. He claims that his fascination with Dunkin’ is somewhat alluring to his children.
“I think they’re charmed by it. I like to think so. I don’t know if it’s true, but, just as with so many other things, it’s what I tell myself,” he told People in February on the set of the Dunkin’ Super Bowl commercial. “I think it’s tolerated, which is the most you can hope for as the parent of adolescents, I found.”
