Talking Duck lands role in movie :eek:

AFLAC Duck lands spot in "Lemony Snicket"

LOS ANGELES(AP) The fussy duck featured in commercials for insurer AFLAC is slated to pop up in "Lemony Snicket's A Series of Unfortunate Events" and a series of ads promoting the movie.

Director Brad Silberling sought out the insurance company's mascot, known for delivering insistent shouts of "AFLAC!" in TV commercials, as a way to add comic relief in one of the scenes in the film, Al Johnson, AFLAC's vice president of advertising and branding, said this week.

In the upcoming movie, starring Jim Carrey, Meryl Streep and Jude Law, the duck is shown being launched off a boat. But that's as far as the in-movie product placement will go. The duck will be identifiable, but it won't be heard yelling its usual AFLAC plug, Johnson said.

The insurer also has agreed to spend $5 million to promote the Paramount Pictures film, which is based on the first three books in the Lemony Snicket children's series. The ads are scheduled to begin airing later this month.

"Lemony Snicket's A Series of Unfortunate Events" opens in theaters Dec. 17.

Q. When you've played as few matches as you have over the last two, three months, did you ever lack motivation to go out and practice?

ANDY RODDICK: Motivation? No. I enjoy what I do. I enjoy what I do. You know, I've never been one to, you know, blow off practice or, you know, do anything like that.

You know, I'd be lying if I said I'm looking forward to practicing the next two days as opposed to playing here. That part is gonna suck...(2010 Aegon Championships)

Arrrgh. Too many Duck threads. I agree with Debstah

Hey, whatever happened to that reality special, where the camera follows Duck around for a year? I think this is the perfect gift for a tennis fan

So what will they do, get an underwater camera and film the series in the pond, i can see it now, the duck shows off his little pond, then fish pops his head up from under the water, says a quick hello and then swims off. Here we have a channel where they have fish swimming around for ages, it will be kinda like that i think.
