New Voice for the Aflac Duck
…and no it’s not Ben Affleck! It’s Dan McKeague, a 36-year-old father of three from suburban Minneapolis.
I’ll definitely miss Gilbert Gottfried and his voice. We’ll see if McKeague can fill his shoes!
From CNN Money:
McKeague, a sales manager at a local radio station with some experience doing voice overs, was one of the many hopeful celebrities, voice over artists and average Joes that submitted over 12,500 live and online auditions to provide the distinctive voice of the Aflac Duck.
In a video posted Tuesday on YouTube, the CEO of the Georgia-based company, Daniel Amos, and two other senior executives are shown offering the job to McKeague over the phone. McKeague, wearing a dark suit and tie, gratefully accepts the job from what appears to be his home.
