Play for both sides. Jennifer Lopez recently revealed that ben Affleck has a soda fountain in his office — but his drink options have left the internet in a daze.

The Hustlers star, 52, shared a video of the Oscar winner, 49, for Father’s Day on Sunday, June 19, featuring footage of Affleck in his office, where he has his own soda machine. The fountain itself was quite shocking, but it was the combination of soda options that sent fans into a tailspin: The machine seemingly contains an unholy alliance of both Diet Coke and Diet Pepsi.

“Ben Affleck has a fountain that dispenses both *Diet Coke and Diet Pepsi. This man is a miracle,” tweeted one stunned social media user. Another referenced the argo star as a “CHAOS KING” for having both brands in one machine. “This is such a psychopathic move lmao,” another observer tweeted. “Long live Ben Affleck.”

As Slate noted that Coca-Cola and Pepsi products in the wild almost never appear in the same machine, as each company uses its own proprietary connector for soda fountains. This implies that someone went to great lengths to produce Affleck’s machine, which apparently also includes a Mountain Dew flavor (a brand of Pepsi).

Aside from the difficulty of installing both Coke and Pepsi products in the same machine, soda drinkers tend to have a strong preference for one or the other — and the Good Will Hunting writer has been photographed several times drinking Diet Coke. This lead Slate to wonder if the Diet is Pepsi Fountain for Lopez, who appeared in a commercial for the soft drink brand in 2005 and also headlined the Pepsi-sponsored halftime show of the 2020 Super Bowl.

Despite the potential soda war brewing in their home, the Grammy nominee and the Deep water actor seems happier than ever after rekindling their romance in 2021. In April, the New York City resident announced that the duo were getting engaged for the second time after their breakup in January 2004.

“Saturday night, while in my favorite place on earth (in the hot tub), my beautiful love got down on one knee and proposed to her,” the “Get Right” singer wrote in her “On the JLo” newsletter at the time. “I was totally taken by surprise and just looked into his eyes smiling and crying at the same time.”

Before the couple were officially engaged, an insider told exclusively We Weekly that they have already started to think about what they want their wedding to look like. “Both Ben and Jen want their marriage to be a comprehensive statement of their love story to their friends and family,” the source said in December 2021. “They really want [everyone] have a good time. They want it to be intimate, but immaculate.”
