THIS DUCK BUILT A BILLION DOLLAR COMPANY

Every time we see the Aflac duck commercial we fall in love all over again. Sometimes his adventures are a little jarring and we worry about his safety. We also think longingly about getting a duck of our own, but it just isn’t practical. The duck’s successful ad campaign has put an unknown insurance company ON THE MAP and won many advertising awards in the process. At one time Gilbert Gottfried was the duck’s voice, but he tweeted some unfortunate remarks about Japan after their 2011 earthquake, and got himself fired. (Japan is a huge market for the company.) We are told the duck is now an “international icon” and suitably pampered. Above, our favorite duck appeared at an Aflac holiday charity event.

    Those were the biggest paychecks Gilbert will ever see in this lifetime. Also the easiest.

    He should have kept his big bill shut.

    He’s now an honored inductee in the Anita Bryant Hall of Shame (Open Mouth, Insert Foot Division)! 😀

    Aflac is a scam company that prey on unintelligent. It is simply supplemental insurance. They try and get people who make low wages, to pay weekly proportion of their salary to offset the little money you’ll get reimbursed. The only policy worth anything is their premium cancer program. Skip the rest

NEW UPDATE CHECK IT OUT - HOLLYWOOD WHODUNIT!

  • Blind Item: America’s Sweetheart Battling A Drug Addiction?
    |

    BLIND_ITEM_NEW_#CUT

    One of America’s Sweethearts is battling a serious drug addiction- not hers, but her best friend’s. Through the years these two have been stuck to one another like white on rice and her fame rubbed off on her pal. They’ve been roomies, have worked together on set, and even launched a business venture together. But all that success has come with a price. After years of being sober, the less famous friend has fallen HARD off the wagon and our gal doesn’t know what to do. She’s hosted an intervention, hired an addiction specialist, and even threatened to end the friendship, but nothing seems to work. What’s a girl to do?
