Dhani Jones Wants To Be the AFLAC Duck

The Cincinnati Enquirer is reporting that Bengals free agent linebacker has a new career dream in mind-he wants to become the new voice of the duck on the AFLAC commercials.

Jones is one of more than 1,000 people auditioning to replace comedian Gilbert Gottfried, who was fired by the Columbu, Georgia-based company after making tasteless jokes about the earthquake and tsunami in Japan. His humor didn’t go over well as AFLAC does three quarters of their business in the country.

“There’s a lockout going on,” Jones says on his Youtube audition. “I need a job.” Jones has television experience hosting Dhani Tackles the Globe on the Travel Channel. He has stiff competition, however, in the form of song parody master Weird Al Yankovic.
