You can take the boy out of New England, but you can never really take New England’s favorite coffee and baked-goods chain out of the boy, can you? We’ve finally decided it’s time for Ben Affleck to embrace his destiny and become a paid brand ambassador for Dunkin’ Donuts, given that he’s, you know, newly out of a job and just admitted he finds an excuse to go there every damn day as a denizen of iced-coffee epicenter Los Angeles. “It’s amazing! I have Dunkin’ Donuts everyday,” Affleck told Collider about the company’s rapid West Coast expansion. “It’s very weird, I have it every day and people are always like, ‘Where is that? Is that near here?’ So, I feel like I’m spreading the word.” Affleck’s passion for DD’s coffee-flavored sugar milk is well documented and fun to browse, and his brother, Casey, even got to poke fun at the powdery institution on SNL. America runs on brand loyalty — and Dunkin’!
