Aflac Hires a New Duck to Replace Gilbert Gottfried
Meet (and hear) Dan McKeague, a father of three from Minneapolis
The fans suggested Fran Drescher. They got Dan McKeague.
The 36-year-old Minnesotan is the new Aflac duck, replacing Gilbert Gottfried who was fired for making tasteless jokes about the tsunami in Japan, where the insurance company does business.
And while McKeague, a father of three who works as a sales manager with some voice acting experience, is not well known, he certainly has the pipes to pull off the trademark “Aflaaaaaac!” squawk, as this video proves.
