Forget Dunkin’ Donuts iced coffee, we have to talk about Ben Affleck’s controversial soda habits.
On June 19, Jennifer Lopez posted a touching tribute to her fiancé on Instagram, writing, “Happy Father’s Day to the most caring, loving, affectionate, consistent and selfless dad ever.” The caption was accompanied by a video mashup of sweet moments between the couple, which rekindled their early relationship in April 2021. Cute and normal, right?
Well, upon closer examination, fans noticed something that honestly looks illegal in some footage of Affleck’s home office: a soda fountain that features both Diet Pepsi and Diet Coke. That shouldn’t even be possible! According SlateCoke and Pepsi products are not compatible in the same soda dispenser for reasons that seem very technical and make little or no sense to me (read for yourself here).
Long story short: This is probably a custom-made soda maker that someone went “the extra mile” to build. It means Affleck really wanted both options. But why?!
You should ask him! For now, the Internet has some thoughts. Twitter user @kath_krueger, whose original soda fountain tweet gained 32,000 likes, described the actor as a “king of chaos”.
