In the process of brainstorming around the name, Affleck drops…can you call them bars? Leaning into his Bawstun accent, he raps, “I spit bars, but you were called Vanilla Ice Spice, ba-bep-bep-bep, here I am with Dunkin’.”
Don’t ask me why, but this is…so charming? Affleck’s always had a great self-deprecating streak, but it’s usually deadpan, not goofy. This commercial, though…as filmmaker BenDavid Grabinski tweeted, “Affleck should do 40 comedies a year. I don’t even care if they’re good. Let the man cook.” LET. THE. MAN. COOK.
For those wishing to try the drink out, know that is does have a pumpkin flavor and, per a press release, the texture of a cookies ’n’ cream shake. I…okay, sure. It’s available now through the end of October.
Also, in the press package, Dunkin’ included pictures of a jewel-encrusted necklace that the brand gifted to Ice Spice and which she shared on her social channels on September 12.
