Her partnership with Affleck in a Dunkin' commercial, which premiered during the MTV Video Music Awards, introduced the Ice Spice Munchkins Drink, a concoction blending Dunkin's frozen coffee with pumpkin Munchkins, topped off with whipped cream and a caramel drizzle.
The ad was produced by Affleck's company, Artists Equity, solidifying the successful partnership between the rapper and the acclaimed actor-director.
