Hollywood star Ben Affleck has recently turned a humorous leaf by addressing his now-famous 'bored' expression from the 2023 Grammy Awards. In a light-hearted twist, Affleck featured in a Dunkin' Donuts Super Bowl commercial, playfully acknowledging the viral moment he shared with his wife, Jennifer Lopez, at the celebrated music event.
The commercial begins with a nod to the infamous photo, humorously labeled "the boredest man in the world," capturing Affleck and Lopez at the previous year's Grammys. This playful start sets the tone for the rest of the ad, where Affleck, a father of three, humorously attempts to follow in his wife's footsteps.
He is seen trying his hand at music and dance, guided by TikTok sensation Charli D’Amelio, in a light-hearted take on his own artistic talents.
Affleck's Playful Comeback
Affleck's self-deprecating humor doesn't stop there.
He jests about his supposed lack of rhythm and coordination, jokingly questioning his potential to become a pop star. "They tell you you’re no good. You’re a goofy, middle-aged, clumsy white guy with no rhythm and you can’t sing on key.
You’re not coordinated. That means I can’t be a pop star?" he quips in the commercial. This tongue-in-cheek moment culminates in Affleck dramatically declaring, “This is me now," in a playful reference to Lopez's upcoming album and film.
The viral Grammy moment had previously caught the attention of fans and media alike, with many speculating about Affleck's seemingly unamused expressions during public appearances with Lopez. Addressing these curiosities, Lopez, in a conversation with Entertainment Tonight at the 2024 Golden Globe Awards, reassured everyone about Affleck's well-being.
"I don’t know. Ben is doing alright — you don’t need to worry about Ben. Let me just tell you, he is good. He is happy," she said with a laugh. Lopez and Affleck's love story is one for the books. The couple, initially engaged in the early 2000s, faced a highly-publicized split but found their way back to each other in 2021. Their rekindled romance led to a secret marriage in 2022, marking a new chapter in their enduring love story.
