Is Aflac’s ‘Family Business’ Commercial Offensive?
Dennis and Judi were talking about this commercial from Aflac on the air today and wanted your opinion on it.
The commercial has the Aflac Duck getting kidnapped by a couple of mobsters and being asked about how Aflac’s insurance works if you have an “unfortunate accident.” The head mobster is played by actor Frank Vincent who has been in a host of mob movies and also a featured role in the hit series ‘The Sopranos.’
An Italian American Heritage group has complained about how Italians are portrayed within the commercial and want the ad removed. Do you think there is any offensive stereotypes here?
