Ben Affleck is back for Dunkin’.

After his ad for the coffee purveyors during the Super Bowl, the actor and director is in a new commercial promoting the Dunkin’ Run. It includes a $1 donut when purchasing a medium or large coffee. In the clip he gets mistaken for friend and business partner Matt Damon.

“I’m here for the Dunkin’ Run… campaign, commercial,” Affleck says. “It’s a great deal – a large coffee, a donut for a buck. I mean, it’s pretty cool.”

The two employees in the ad don’t recognize “The Town” actor.

“So I thought it would be like authentic and meta – yes, I’m doing the commercial, but am I doing the commercial?” He says. “You know, I don’t do commercials. I’m a real actor. This is an art form for me.”

One coworker tries to help the other recognize the famous person with them by saying, “you know, ‘The Departed’.”

Affleck seems to take offense to the mix up.

“He’s had a really consistent career,” one of the workers says of Damon, which causes Affleck to groan.

Affleck ends the ad by leaving the store with a donut and his iced coffee.

His previous ad for Dunkin’ featured wife Jennifer Lopez.
