Matt Damon and Ben Affleck Vie Awkwardly for Tom Brady’s Love in Support of Three Good Causes

Here's your chance to hang with them!

If either Matt Damon or Ben Affleck has an actual superpower, it's their epic friendship—a bond so endearing and renowned that it even won them an award.

Until Tom Brady arrived. 

The #BFFgoals-inspiring pair are facing off for Brady's affections via Skype in this weird, but charming, promotion for fundraising platform Omaze, which is offering you the chance to win an afternoon in Boston with all three of them, part of an effort to raise money for three charities. 

"For just $10, you and a friend can hang out with me and Tom Brady," Affleck says. "And I guess also Matt will be there." 

This quickly devolves into an argument ranging from Affleck's nickname for Brady (T-Bone…?) to that one time Damon wouldn't stop staring at his chin. 

"If your chin was anything like Tom's, that Batman movie of yours would have made about $4 billion," Damon shoots back. "Because that's the only part recognizable of you, is that big ugly chin. Tom is a superhero." 

Tom is patched into the call about halfway through. As he listens to the last leg of the fight before jumping in, his expression remains awesomely deadpan.

To win your chance to get between these three, donate a minimum of $10 to Omaze. Every $10 donation gets you 100 entries to the contest, with the grand prize being an all-expense-paid trip to Boston to "meet up with the guys, grab some pizza, bond over beer, talk football, maybe even throw around the pigskin." 

Fun fact: Apparently Brady neither eats pizza nor drinks beer. But hey! We're sure there's salad in Boston. 

Larger donations yield additional entries and other prizes, including a digital thank-you from the guys, a copy of the Good Will Hunting screenplay (which Damon and Affleck co-wrote), and autographed Boston-themed memorabilia, like a Tom Brady jersey or a Boston Pride flag. 

The contest supports, the Eastern Congo Initiative and the TB12 Foundation, whose causes are more than enough good reason to enter. But if you're in it for the perks, know that Brady is probably more eager to see you than he is to see his co-stars in this gambit.

"I can't wait to meet you and tell you which one of these guys I actually like better. Take care," he says at the end of the video. And as he signs off, Affleck plaintively calls out, "It's me, the answer's me."

(Probably not, though, Ben. Probably not.)
