If there's one thing in this world that Ben Affleck will always truly be known for, it's his love of Dunkin'.
At this point, he's basically the food chain's brand ambassador. You remember the Super Bowl commercial he did...
As well as his recent Dunkin' ad with Ice Spice.
Ben loves Dunkin' so much that his being photographed with Dunkin' products has, itself, become a thing.
And being photographed with Dunkin' (or, at least, Dunkin'-looking cups of coffee) while also looking completely miserable has become a thing-inside-of-a-thing.
With that being said, we now bring to you a twist upon this increasingly niche genre of content: Ben Affleck...looking miserable...holding Starbucks.
Indeed, the emergence of a rare Ben Affleck-holding-something-that's-not-Dunkin'-with-a-pained-look-on-his-face shot has caused ripples throughout the discourse — but, there's a catch. The photo is actually from 2014, some time before Ben's Dunkin' relationship became such a thing.
But just because the photo's old doesn't mean the internet didn't have jokes. Here's some of the funniest tweets about all of it:
