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

    This bad boy seems to have calmed down since he got serious about his former pornstar girlfriend and he has his friends wondering WHY. What’s so special about HER? We hear she keeps him satisfied by supplying her MALE porn costars for his entertainment. The bad boy pays each guy $5000 per visit so they are highly motivated to make him happy. It’s a family affair – the girlfriend watches while the bad boy fiddles around with the guys!
