Aflac!!!!!! what kind of duck do they use?

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 

My son was wondering what kind of duck the Aflac commercials use. He originally thought it was a white runner duck, but the pictures on the internet show other wise. Any ideas help.

And it is a male!  Nice drake feather near the tail.

The voice for the Aflac duck was fired yesterday due to comments/jokes he made about the earthquake/tsunami in Japan.
