Aflac duck finds its new voice

Kai Ryssdal Apr 26, 2011

This final note today. Ladies and gentlemen, we have a winner.

Those are the not-so-dulcet tones of one Dan McKeague of Hugo, Minn. Mr. McKeague is the new voice of Aflac, the insurance company whose mascot is that duck. The job came open after comedian GIlbert Gottfried was fired for tasteless tweets about the earthquake in Japan.

I’m happy for Mr. McKeague that he got the job. But really, kinda sounds the same, doesn’t he?
