Rest Easy, America: The New AFLAC Spokesduck Has Been Chosen

Our brief national nightmare is over: supplemental insurance company AFLAC has chosen a new man to voice its spokesduck after comedian Gilbert Gottfried was fired from the job for cracking jokes about the tsunami in Japan over Twitter. The new man for the job? a 36-year-old radio sales manager from Minnesota who auditioned for the job online.

The company released the first commercial featuring new voice Dan McKeague. During its time off, the duck apparently learned how to break dance.
