Ben Affleck’s love of Dunkin’ (the establishment formerly known as Dunkin’ Donuts) has officially reached new heights, and they’re pretty darn funny! On Saturday, April 13, a Twitter user named Amelia Wedemeyer, who goes by the handle @ameliadeew, kicked off an LOL-worthy (and seemingly random) thread in which she reimagined the Academy Award-winning actor as a series of beverages sold by the Massachusetts-based chain.
Wedemeyer, who is a Los Angeles-based writer and social media assistant at The Ringer, created her beverage-centered masterpiece by placing photos of Affleck dressed as some of his iconic movie characters alongside snapshots of Dunkin’ drinks.
“Ben Affleck as beverages from Dunkin Donuts,” she tweeted with a split photo of the 46-year-old dressed in a large white suit and a similar-looking Vanilla Bean Coolatta. And that was only the beginning.
Two photos from the father of three’s role in Live by Night followed, and deftly compared a pair of tan outfits to a Frozen Dunkaccino and iced coffee, respectively.
The screenwriter’s memorable role in Armageddon was also given the Dunkin’ treatment. For that 1998 classic, Wedemeyer used a photo of Affleck’s character, A.J. Frost, in his bright orange space suit, and juxtaposed it with a photo of an iced tea, which is characterized by a similarly vibrant hue.
For Wedemeyer, red carpet shots of Affleck as well as candid paparazzi pictures of him were also fair game. For example, she compared a Dunkin’ Strawberry Coolatta to a photo of the Project Greenlight producer rocking a berry-red suit at the premiere of Triple Frontier. She also likened a snapshot of a tattooed Affleck at the beach to a pair of multi-colored Dunkin’ Slushies and a colorful doughnut.
The thread is a fitting tribute for Affleck, a Massachusetts native who recently revealed that he has Dunkin’ “every day.”
Since it was first posted, the thread has gotten more than 33,000 likes and been shared more than 9,000 times. It has also netted hundreds of comments, including one from Seth Rogen who declared, “This is art.”
As another impressed Twitter user put it: “I will be happily submitting this for consideration for the Nobel Prize for Literature.”
