Versatile Aflac Duck Rehearses For His Next Spanish Commercial

COLUMBUS, Ga., Sept. 16, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Aflac, the number one provider of supplemental insurance in the United States, announced it will debut its new Spanish language television commercial called " Rehearsal" today on Spanish television and radio stations in key Hispanic markets. Rehearsal is Aflac's third Spanish language commercial in 2013, and is the final installment of the company's " Out of Work Duck" campaign that has chronicled the Aflac Duck through an unexpected injury, recovery and now his quest to get back to work as Aflac's famous spokesduck. 

In this new ad, the Aflac Duck is rehearsing backstage to get the "word" out, using a variety of popular Latin cliches to connect with the diverse Hispanic community, about the company that pays policyholders cash benefits so they can focus on recovery rather than worry about their finances. The "word", of course, is "Aflaaaac!" 

In January, Aflac initiated a new campaign called " Out of Work Duck" depicting the Aflac Duck, injured and unable to work. Since his accident, the Duck has been seen -- but not heard -- in Spanish language commercials chronicling his injury and recovery. In Rehearsal, the Duck is showing his versatility in pitching to Spanish-speaking audiences using musical cliches to get his point across.  

"As the diverse Hispanic market continues to grow, we want to remind all Spanish speaking consumers about the peace of mind that Aflac policies can help provide," Aflac Executive Vice President and Chief Marketing Officer Michael Zuna said. "In Rehearsal, the Duck is trying hard to hit all the right notes, informing consumers that Aflac helps protect their finances when an unexpected accident or illness occurs."

Rehearsal, which is targeting all Hispanic adults, will air on Spanish television and radio stations in New York, Miami, Los Angeles, Houston, Orlando, Puerto Rico, and San Francisco.
