How did he get this gig? Seriously...my submitted version was WAY better and I'm sure there were at least 1000 more better than mine!
Wish I could submit my audio here so you could be the judge. He even sounded a bit like Donald Duck to me. Where's Disney? Copyright infringement, perhaps? : (

So not newsworthy. This Gilbert Gottfried wannabe/dork is making the media rounds like he is Donald Trump or Justin Bieber. AFLAC knowingly hired Gottfried, always politically incorrect, employed him for 11 years during which he continued to make appearances on the Howard Stern show, in The Aristocrats movie, tell 9/11 jokes, then gets offended when by his Tsunami jokes. What hypocrites.

Cindy, this guy got the gig the same way that many people in Hollywood and commercial acting do. Basically, it comes down to two things: who you bl@*w or who you know. No coincidence that this guy works in advertising sales and recorded his audition tape in a professional studio. He may have been their original choice and the contest was made up for marketing purposes. AFLAC now has free publicity.

Thanks, Deryck. He seems like a nice enough guy, but so far, I am not impressed with his version. Well, on the bright side, I probably would have ruined my vocal chords if I got the job. It does put a strain on your voice when you repeatedly quack/talk like a duck!

Daniel, you'll fail at this after people start digging into your past. Can't wait for aflac to hire another duck voice when they find out about your skeletons in the closet.

The Voice is fresh, friendly, caring and kind, which AI has nothing on. I love Cee Lo, I would marry him if he would sing me the song "Crazy", I would be the happiest woman on the earth. Great Show, I love it and will continue to watch, its fresh and new!! BRING IT!! http://bit.ly/lyN1rg

I miss Gilbert Gottfried as the voice of the duck. If only Aflac brought back Gottfried, re-hire him as the voice of the duck and take Daniel McKeague out.
