Ben Affleck paid $10 million dollars by Dunkin to do Super Bowl ad

Dunkin is willing to pay the big bucks to Bostonian Dunkin lover Ben.

I’m sure he’s donating it to underprivileged children, right?! Right?

It's a dying chain. Boston-based company thinks that hiring a Boston actor to represent the brand will somehow make people find it charming. Bostonians and New Englanders are so provincial, people think that others love the Boston accent and attitude across the country. They do not.

It's like they lifted a page from Samuel Adams with 'your cousin from Boston' commercials. That may work for alcohol as it's more of a male beer thing to have a funny, irreverent Boston character in your ads - but it doesn't translate to shitty donuts.

10 million??????

Dunkin has not left the Top 10 money earning chains in many years within the USA. It finished last year at #7 bringing in $9.2 billion. It’s not dying.

$10,000,000 ?

That must be almost as much as they earlier paid Jerry

They know he's going to spend at least half of that in their stores. I'd also recommend opening a liquor store near his house with jacked up prices for anyone who wants the other $5 million.

I'm looking forward to the Superbowl for the ADS and then maybe the halftime show.

R8 sorry. You’re right. I thought it was last year. Dunkin was actually doing even better in 2023 than 2017.

Dunkin earned $11.28 billion in 2023. Thanks for correcting me r8. Their numbers were up last year. Certainly not dying.

How much will Pornhub pay him to be filmed having his SCRAWNY ASS be fucked by Matt Damon?

Shouldn't it be the other way around?

Dunkins is not dying, at least not in the Northeast. In New England, there are in some places two or three stores per town. Some a half mile apart, on opposite sides of the same road.

The ad is silly - why does Ben speak in such an affected Boston accent lately? He used to speak normally when he was married to Garner. Now it's "pahk this" and "Bah-stan" that. Highly annoying.

Have to say JLo look fantastic here and recently. Like she's totally aging backwards. It's not all makeup and lighting either, kudos.

by Anonymousreply 19February 12, 2024 5:47 AM

Also, a large chunk of the $10 million fee for the ad went to Ben and Matt's new joint production shingle, that produced these recent ads. It didn't all go to Ben.

R5 So posters are so pathological they just have want to bash a region and will find any obsessive reason to make up lies.

It was hilarious. The best ad of the night.

by Anonymousreply 24February 12, 2024 1:22 PM

It's unfortunately not dying. Since moving to New England I've had to endure that watery swill when I can't find a real coffee shop or Starbucks. I don't drink coffee for the taste, I need it for the strength and caffeine and Dunkin is hands-down the worst. Their donuts taste like breaded chemicals with pasty sugar smeared on top.

New Englanders do love it though, but they're mostly provincial people, no matter how sophisticated they think they are. Especially here in Maine and in Massachusetts. Their love of this outdated pretend coffee chain actually suits them. And all the fat women love all the sweet, sugary drinks they can get from the comfort of their minivans and SUVs without having to actually get out and go inside a store.

by Anonymousreply 25February 12, 2024 1:55 PM

I don’t like Boston, J-Lo, Affleck, Damon, or especially Tom Brady, but it was a fine commercial. And whoever is claiming that Dunkin is “dying” must be living in Bizarro World.

His teeth and gums are disgusting. He must be a heavy smoker.

That commercial was weak as fuck.

10M for cringe.

Would you do it? I probably would. 10M is a lot of money. Though I clearly would be operating from a diff standpoint in the beginning lol

I wonder how much they paid Damon and the others?

Their tracksuits sold out fast after the ad

What do you think is attractive and sexy about Affleck, Teacake?

by Anonymousreply 36February 13, 2024 2:18 AM

R36 Bro he’s perfect. He has a perfectly symmetrical face with nice small features yet insanely masculine. And this is coming from someone increasingly despising white people and what they represent as I get older. I’m sorry. If you area regular gay NOT into any type of fetish; I’ll admit I generally like white middle aged bears but I see beauty in all. I love cuming on their dicks. Affleck is not even a bear. He is just fine.

More income inequality: How much of that $10M did he share with the Dunkin workers? NOTHING!

But I don’t eat what movie stars tell me to eat. I don’t even hear it. I reach for the remote, silence the ad, and return to my reading of Datalounge.

Those Ben Affleck Dunkin Donut ads are getting to be too much. It’s a bit overkill. Though I liked the ones he did with Ice Spice.

No Affleck fan, but to be fair his and Damon's new production house (that produced this ad and others) was set up as an old-school "artist-led studio" that is supposed to enable more creative power and profit sharing with filmmakers and film creatives. The profit from these ads (and the recent Nike movie) are supposed to go back into funding the company and its films and filmmakers.

So it's not all greed and grift on their part.

Does Damon do any Mattsplaining to the creatives regarding diversity in Hollywood like he did on Project Greenlight?

I’d love a Project Greenlight reboot where they’re getting notes via conference call from Harvey Weinstein in prison.
