This is just a guess, but it might’ve been awhile since you thought about Matt Damon and Ben Affleck. I’m not saying it’s because you’re a bad person or anything, but sometimes the original Hollywood best friendship isn’t at the forefront of your mind. That’s okay, don’t beat yourself up.
But as it turns out, today is absolutely the best day to let them back into your life. It’s Valentine’s Day, as I’m sure you’re aware, and these two are the prime reminder of the fact that you don’t need a romantic mushy significant other to make the hearts of the people around you swell with love. All you really need to break my face with smilling is a video where you and your (preferably famous) best friend take joking potshots at each other. Bonus points if it’s for charity.
And look! As if by magic,
Ben & Matt Matt & Ben have provided just what I asked for! It’s a video with each of them using their celebrity to bring attention to related causes associated with Omaze. Ben is repping the Eastern Congo Initiative and Matt lending his name to water.org. And in case two bros doing good wasn’t already enough to bring a smile to your face (you monster), please immediately watch this video and spend the next several hours fantasizing that you are best friends with them and that you can all poke fun at each other like a buncha pals.
I just love it so much. I love that Ben can barely keep a straight face, and that they probably are a little competitive about Oscar nominations on some level, and the incredibly infectious laughter at the end. I just love it all. Give them all the money.
Or…not even all the money. Just $10, and all of a sudden that BFF-fantasy I talked about earlier is that much closer to coming true. BRIGHT EYES CLEAR HEARTS CAN’T LOSE.
