AFLAC Duck edges Ronald McDonald to get to Hall of Fame
The AFLAC Duck has been inducted into the Advertising Walk of Fame in New York as one of America's favorite brand icons.
The spokesduck is among five finalists chosen by online voters as one of the most beloved advertising symbols and will be honored with an image-enshrined sidewalk plaque at 50th Street and Madison Avenue in New York City.
Although the most contemporary icon on the ballot, making its national debut less than five years ago, the AFLAC Duck managed to beat several veteran competitors including Ronald McDonald and the Energizer Bunny for a spot on the Walk of Fame. Created by the Kaplan Thaler Group, the popular commercial series featuring the well-known duck has generated more than 90 percent brand recognition for AFLAC (NYSE: AFL) since its launch in 2000.
"We are very pleased that America has connected so well with the AFLAC Duck campaign in such a short period of time," said Dan Amos, CEO and chairman of Columbus-based AFLAC, noting the duck's quick rise to fame. "This win is a great honor and we appreciate the recognition given to us by the voting public."
The Duck goes in the HOF and Ronald doesn't...that is a catastrophy of the bad kind....I for one am boycotting the Duck...
