After two months of speculation that Aflac Insurance may rehire Gottfried, they have announced the new voice of the Aflac Duck.
Ladies and gentlemen, please meet Daniel McKeague.
McKeague was one of over 12,000 actors who tried out for the iconic voice of the Aflac Duck.
The actor is a 36-year-old radio sales manager from Hugo, Minnesota.
“I have long admired people who can act and make the most of their voice and have tried to emulate them, and I want to thank Aflac for the incredible honor of voicing the greatest icon in corporate America and representing a company that not only leads its industry but also leaves a positive social imprint in every community it serves.”
McKeague was hired after Gottfried made insensitive comments about the disaster in Japan last month and was fired by the insurance company.
