Ben Affleck is going viral on social media after an interview he did in Spanish with the outlet Cadena SER, which posted it online April 3.
According to reports, after just three days, clips from the sitdown had garnered more than 2 million views on TikTok and another 350,000 views on Twitter.
Today writes that the interview was about his movie Air, which premiered in theatres April 5 and tells the story of how Nike landed Michael Jordan as a client. Affleck produces, directs and stars in the film.
Many fans on TikTok are still marveling at the Air director’s seemingly fluent Spanish chops.

“(It’s) an example of how to get respect from Spanish-speaking communities and promote your movie,” one viewer on TikTok wrote. “Something the rest of artists should do.”
“Is Ben Mexican?” someone else asked, with another TikToker asking “why (does) he sound Cuban?”
