Anyone interested will be able to submit a 30-second audio or video file belting their best version of the Aflac duck's signature "Aflac" squawk at www.quackaflac.com. The company wants to hear interpretations of the character that may be different from Gottfried's, Zuna said.
Aflac is also posting a job description on Monster.com that includes the following job responsibility:
"Translates complex messages into a single word that tells people, 'Aflac is the insurance company that they can count on in their time of need.'"
The submission deadline is midnight on April Fool's Day. Aflac plans live auditions in six markets including New York and Los Angeles. It expects to air the first ad with the new voice, to be created by its longtime agency, The Kaplan Thaler Group, on April 22.
