New Aflac Commercial Asks, 'Who Dun It?'

Who Pays Cash When You Are Sick or Hurt?

COLUMBUS, Ga., March 2 /PRNewswire/ -- Aflac launched a new television ad starring the Aflac Duck as the mystery benefactor to policyholders who are sick or injured. The spot, called "Who Dun It," humorously shows how Aflac pays cash benefits when a medical event causes financial challenges.

The 30-second commercial is set on a stormy night in a dark parlor. A group of friends is comforting a woman who had an accident and cannot go to work. After a momentary loss of power the lights return, and the injured woman finds herself holding a pile of cash leaving the entire group to ask, -- "who dun it?" The ad continues with each of the friends wondering who provides money when someone is hurt and missing work. All the while the Aflac Duck is leaving hints, including a feather and wet webbed footprints on the floor, as he cries out his familiar "Aflaaac" to no avail.

"While 'Who Dun It' may leave the actors baffled, it's no mystery to policyholders that Aflac pays cash benefits when you're sick or hurt," Aflac Senior Vice President and Chief Marketing Officer Jeff Charney said. "Viewers know that it is the Aflac Duck who pays you cash to help pay for everyday things like groceries, the mortgage or car payments."

"Who Dun It" is the 43rd television commercial featuring the ubiquitous Aflac Duck produced by the Kaplan Thaler Group. It is set to begin airing nationwide on cable and network television on March 2, 2009. It is the fifth television commercial released by Aflac since January.
