Dan McKeague, a 36-year-old married father of three from Minnesota, is the new voice of the Aflac Duck, the company announced today.
McKeague submitted his audition online and was selected from more than 12,500 live and online auditions.
He’s a radio sales manager and has experience doing voiceovers.
“I have long admired people who can act and make the most of their voice and have tried to emulate them,” McKeague said in a statement from Aflac.
McKeague’s new Aflac ad will air during "The Voice" on NBC tonight and will be available this evening on the Aflac Duck’s Facebook page.
Last month, Gilbert Gottfried was fired after 11 years as the voice of the Aflac Duck due to his Twitter posts making fun of the disaster in Japan.
Aflac initiated a search to find the duck's new voice. The company offered online auditions and held open casting calls in six cities, including Atlanta.
