The final glimpse of Ben Affleck and his Dunkin’ in 2020 did not disappoint.
The Cambridge native, clad in a “Believe in Boston” shirt, appeared to juggle a few iced coffees (in winter, no less, in true Massachusetts fashion) plus some Munchkins outside of his Los Angeles home on Thursday, prompting a number of Twitter users to highlight a fitting sendoff to the year that can’t end soon enough.
The star of the upcoming “Zack Snyder’s Justice League” and his girlfriend, actress Ana de Armas, have been fixtures of paparazzi photos throughout the pandemic, and Affleck is rarely spotted without his enormous Dunkin’ in hand.
Affleck and Dunkin’ began trending on Twitter as reactions to the photos poured in, including one from Boston Mayor Marty Walsh, who apparently found Affleck relatable.
“Ben Affleck really just gave us this gem to end 2020,” as one person put it.
One person proposed the image become a contender for the Massachusetts state flag.
Amanda Katz, a writer and editor formerly with the Globe, noted the “pure Boston energy” of the photo.
