New television ad from insurer affirms power of the Aflac Duck.
COLUMBUS, Ga., April 2, 2007 /PRNewswire via COMTEX News Network/ -- Today, Aflac announced the launch
of its latest television commercial, "There's Only One Aflac." The spot
humorously illustrates there is no substitute for Aflac, the number one
provider of guaranteed-renewable insurance in the United States.
The 30-second spot shows an employee asking his boss if their company has
Aflac while the two are standing in front of the water cooler. His boss
replies they have "something else" as a goat who represents another insurance
company chews papers, shakes his head and responds "naaaa" to every question
the employee has about whether the insurance plan pays cash like Aflac does to
help you pay bills while you are sick or hurt. The commercial ends as the goat
flees the building chased by the Aflac Duck.
"This campaign demonstrates that there is only one Aflac and that other
insurance policies don't compare to Aflac," said Dan Amos, chairman and CEO of
Aflac. "Aflac pays cash benefits that policyholders can use however they see
fit, be it for rent, groceries, or to help replace loss income."
"There's Only One Aflac," is the 29th installment in the popular Aflac
commercial series produced by the Kaplan Thaler Group. The ad is scheduled to
debut nationwide on April 2. The spot will run on major networks and cable
channels such as ABC, CBS, NBC, A&E, CNBC and Discovery.

opportunity to direct cash where it is needed most when a life-interrupting
medical event causes financial challenges. Aflac is the number one provider of
guaranteed-renewable insurance in the United States and the number one
