Montage of Aflac Duck Auditions (VIDEO)
Aflac is looking for a new voice to speak for their spokes-duck. Comedian Gilbert Gottfried - the original voice of the Aflac duck - was fired from that position, after making insensitive jokes about the Japan tsunami on Twitter.
His series of Tweets included, quote, "Japan is really advanced. They don't go to the beach. The beach comes to them." And another one said, quote, "I just split up with my girlfriend, but like the Japanese say, "They'll be another one floating by any minute now.""
Since Gottfried's termination, Aflac has been holding auditions to try and find a suitable replacement. Hundreds of folks have tried out to be the new voice for the duck, but Aflac officials have yet to fill the position.
