Ben Affleck & Jennifer Lopez Got Paid An Insane Amount For The Dunkin' Super Bowl Commercial

We all know how much Ben Affleck likes his Dunkin'—last month he was spotted taking orders at a Dunkin' drive-thru in Massachusetts, which was later confirmed to be for a Super Bowl commercial. And the anticipated ad starring Affleck and Jennifer Lopez has finally made its debut, including a sweet new deal.

While Affleck is working the drive-thru, he announces the chain's new special—the Dunkin' Run, where customers can get a $1 classic donut with the purchase of a medium coffee or larger. He then says, "how can it be this inexpensive and good?"

After taking a few orders, Lopez pulls up at the drive-thru asking "what are you doing here?"

"Don't embarrass me in front of my friends," says Affleck.

"Is this what you do when you say you're going to work all day?" asks Lopez. Before Affleck heads out, Lopez asks him to grab her a glazed donut.

A source told ET that Affleck signed a deal with Dunkin' worth "several million dollars." The partnership also includes a donation to Affleck's nonprofit, the Eastern Congo Initiative.

Affleck's love of Dunkin' started when he was growing up in Massachusetts. Dunkin' was the go-to spot after Little League and he eventually started drinking coffee as a teenager, according to an interview with PEOPLE. He then revealed his coffee order—an iced coffee with milk and two sugars (sometimes Splenda).

And this isn't the first time he's worked at a donut shop—he told ET that his first paycheck came from washing dishes at a donut shop in Massachusetts.

I don't know about you, but we're looking forward to the Dunkin' Run deal and more from Dunkin's #1 fan.
