Aflac Duck Finds Its New Voice
Hear the 36-year-old Minnesota radio station manager who beat out more than 12,500 people for Gilbert Gottfried's old gig.
The Aflac Duck has a new voice.
Daniel McKeague, a 36-year-old Minnesota radio station sales manager who has experience doing voice-overs, was chosen from more than 12,500 live and online auditions.
“I have long admired people who can act and make the most of their voice and have tried to emulate them,” he said in a statement.
McKeague's first ad airs tonight during NBC's The Voice (hear a clip below).
McKeague replaces comedian Gilbert Gottfried, who was fired from the gig after 11 years for making a series of mean-spirited jokes on Twitter about Japanese tsunami victims (Alfac does most of its business in Japan).
