Last night Aflac has officially revealed the new voice of their quacking duck! Drumroll please…the new gig goes to Daniel McKeague, a 36-year-old sales manager. The insurance company held a nationwide search which was spawned by firing comedian and former voice of the duck for 11 years, Gilbert Gottfried.
Daniel, a father of three, is the new voice behind the Aflac “spokesduck.” The Minnesota-based man quacked his way into the prime spot by beating out 12,500 other duck hopefuls. As noted by E! Online, the new voice premiered last night during The Voice.
As for what Gilbert’ll be up to now that this duck quacking thing has gone buh bye, he’ll star in Calendar Girl, a comedy/horror/romance flick being released this year, according to IMDb.
