The Aflac Duck

Silent But Violent

3/22/2011 9:15 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

With Gilbert Gottfried fired for his tsunami jokes ... the people at Aflac found a clever way to keep their famous duck alive while they hunt for the replacement voice ... and it's the oldest trick in cinema.032211_aflac_v2_still



TMZ obtained a copy of the new Aflac commercial -- a re-edit of a 2006 spot -- and even though the duck gets hits by a frickin' train ... we're told he'll live on ... and a new voice will be selected soon.

Quack. Quack. Quack.

Not a bad commercial at all. Unexpected... yes but a very well put together one.

GeezLouise,I mean the talent pool is so thin in Hollywood and the voice over community they can't replace a freakin duck voice? No wonder I guess when they're STILL looking to rehire bums like Charlie despite the 'third world ghetto druggie lowlife' sitcom he's starring in now called his life.

Oh but he's 'winning'...yea, right to his grave, where all the dough in the world means squat, since a trip to hell is still free last time I checked and he's booked first class

I'm pretty sure this is an old commercial, not a new one.

My family was recently run over and killed by a train, so I am offended by this commercial. I can't believe they are so insensitive!

Aflac: Just take Gilbert back! C'mon! He never had taste, and he was good enough for you before!

Gilbert should be considered a comedic legend. (if he isn't already) He doesn't need aflac. Team Gilbert ! !
