    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.

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