Aflac Duck or Goose?

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 

I know Aflac is supposed to be a duck but if you look at the commercials he is looking more like a goose. What do y'all think?

It's a pekin duck. Those do get pretty big. Plus sometimes they are using a "prop duck" and it isn't quite right.

7 quacking ducks, 5 spazzy quail, 3 lazy cats, 2 grown sons, 1 goofy husband... and no partridge, but I have a pear tree!

It is a computer animation modeled on a pekin.

Yes, I am sure it is Pekin Duck but the CG especially the new one with Guy Feirti makes him a little goose like.

Nope. He's a Pekin duck. I've had several over the years (and yes...some of them have, oh how typical, been called Aflac. lol) I have one right now.

Definitely a Pekin Duck, and not a terrible rendition of one, really.
