AFLAC this, insurance duck!
Blog Guy, I know you follow the advertising business. I was wondering if successful ad campaigns in the States work well overseas, as well?
Not always. You know those insurance commercials where that obnoxious duck keeps saying “AFLAC!” until you want to wring its neck?
Duck? I thought that was a goose.
Really? I’ll take a gander at Google…
A gander? So anyway, what happened?
They tried shooting that commercial in Hungary, and the duck did his AFLAC! thing near a line of riot police.
Turns out the cops weren’t discussing insurance. They were talking about dinner, and Hungarian cuisine relies heavily on ducks and geese. You do the math.
Is any of this true?
No, but it’s like that saying, “If:it looks like a duck and walks like a duck and quacks like a duck…then let’s roast it in sauerkraut and caraway seeds and eat it!”
