Auditions for Aflac duck not going that well

Aflac auditions

A couple of tips for anyone who'd like to be the next voice of the Aflac duck: Realize that potential future employers will read your Twitter feed. And do not—I repeat, do not—mimic a beloved Disney character during your audition. (I'm too late on that second piece of advice, judging from the outtakes here. Guys, pretty sure that's intellectual property theft). Not surprisingly, plenty of people are willing to humiliate themselves and assault my eardrums by trying to fill Gilbert Gottfried's shoes. Which approach will tickle the fancy of the marketer? The screech that could shatter glass? The Gottfried wannabe? The protracted scream that must've been emitted on a dare? I'll be locating my earplugs while the insurance company is making up its mind.
