Let's Not Forget That Ben Affleck Was in the "Jenny From the Block" Video


Ben Affleck's been in the collective conscience these past two weeks, given his penis' cameo in David Fincher's Gone Girl and his appearance on Real Time With Bill Maher Show shutting the host down on the topic of Islamophobia. But something else has been nagging at us about Ben Affleck, and it's time to address it. Wasn't he in the "Jenny from the Block" video?

Once upon a time in "the early aughts" -- a time that was terrible for highlights, women's flip-flops and pants in general -- Ben Affleck and Jennifer Lopez dated. (The two met while filming the widely panned Gigli. IMDB synopsis: "The violent story about how a criminal lesbian, a tough-guy hit-man with a heart of gold, and a mentally challenged man came to be best friends through a hostage.") Perhaps the first of the early 2000s tabloid supercouples, frenzied coverage of "Bennifer" fell within a sweet spot when online celebrity gossip was an awakening sleeping giant, and print celebrity tabloids had gone all hot-pink-"stars, they're just like us" in a successful attempt to harness the power of the female consumer.

Though Affleck and Lopez were eventually engaged, she called things off in 2004. In a December 2012 GQ interview, Affleck says the scrutiny and general head-scratching over their relationship was all too much to deal with. "The amount of venom -- I must have touched some specific little place in the consciousness...," Affleck told the magazine. "People decided that I was the frat guy, even though I've never been inside a fraternity, or the guy who beat them up at school, even though that wasn't me at all." Except for the fact that that's exactly the guy Ben Affleck is in this video.

We hope that Jennifer Garner sends this to him at least once a month, linked to non-related topics. "What do you think of these curtains for the bedroom?" Boom: it's the video. We hadn't watched the "Jenny from the Block" video in years, vaguely remembering that Affleck merely makes a cameo on a boat. Nope, he is all over this thing. Love makes people do crazy things, and that's our only explanation for this.
