After exuding much "sad energy" at the Grammy Awards, Ben Affleck once again shows the internet why he can be such a mood.

The viral video of what appears to be a paparazzi footage shows Affleck opening the car door for his wife Jennifer Lopez after buying coffee.

As Lopez takes her seat, Affleck appears to have dramatically shut the door, with his hand lingering in the air for a few seconds after the closing motion.

Affleck then walks to the driver's seat and displays a brooding look as the video cuts to black.

The video has been reposted on Twitter and TikTok several times, with commenters in the post of TikTok user @moviemaniacs having a field day.

"He looks so happy," one of the top comments read.

"I'm dying at the way he closed the door haha," another one read.

Others, meanwhile, speculated that Affleck was tired of paparazzis following him and his wife.

"This short film can indicate a lot of things, but most importantly, I think it’s just the fact that they’re being filmed," a Twitter user said. "I would be, too. Nobody likes to be filmed without their permission."

"Instead of pulling your phone out and recording their every movement, why not just treat them like human beings and be like 'Oh, hey, it’s Ben and JLO, that’s cool' and go on about your day?" another Twitter user said.

Affleck has been the subject of several memes, including Sad Affleck and Bored Affleck as coined by meme encyclopedia Know Your Meme.

Affleck and Lopez, known to fans as "Bennifer," started their romance in 2002, but called off their engagement two years later. They started their own families with other partners.

Bennifer reunited in 2021, or two decades after their split, and married twice: an intimate ceremony in Las Vegas and a formal affair in Georgia in 2022.
