VIDEO: This 2-Minute Commentary From Ben Affleck On 'Armageddon' Is Feckin' Hilarious

"I asked Michael why it was easier to train oil drillers to become astronauts than it was to train astronauts to become oil drillers and he told me to shut the f*ck up"


An old commentary by Ben Affleck from the Armageddon DVD resurfaced online this week and it's comic gold.

Affleck starred in the disaster movie along Bruce Willis and Liv Tyler, and the plot revolved around the training of oil drillers to become astronauts, as they were the only ones capable of drilling a hole into an asteroid that was on a collision course to Earth and plant a bomb inside that would destroy it.

Ben Affleck had a little bit of trouble with the logic of this plan, which he expresses brilliantly in the clip below.

Guy's got a point.
