Affleck, Damon bicker over who's better friends with Tom Brady – CNET
Technically Incorrect offers a slightly twisted take on the tech that’s taken over our lives.
Famous people from Boston tend to stick together.
Perhaps it gives them a sense of identity. Or perhaps it’s their way of expressing relief that they’re not New Yorkers.
Two of Boston’s most beloved have come together to make an ad for online cause marketplace Omaze and to quarrel about being loved.
Yes, deep inside, Matt Damon and Ben Affleck need love just as much Donald Trump.
However, they don’t need your love. They need Tom Brady’s.
When you’re a celebrity from Boston, you crave what Gisele Bundchen has.
Here, then, the two actors both insist they know the Patriots quarterback better and are closer to him.
You might be able to judge for yourself who’s right if you donate $10 and win a chance to hang out with Brady, as well as these two slightly self-regarding actors. (This is the point of the ad.)
The more they bicker, the more it’s clear that their neediness is so great that they’ll stoop to anything.
Damon is even forced to mock Affleck’s Batman movie. Which seems a little below the utility belt.
When Brady joins their conversation, he seems wiltingly indifferent to both of them. Perhaps it’s just because he isn’t that good an actor.
Brady insists that he’ll tell the winner of this charity drive which of the two actors he likes more.
It seems clear which one of them is more obsessed with Brady.
Affleck, after all, went on a profanity-blessed tirade this year on Bill Simmons’ frightfully exciting HBO show in order to defend his hero.
Beat that, Matt.
