Aflac teams up with Disney-Pixar for Up


MUMBAI: Georgia based insurance company Aflac has teamed up with Disney-Pixar to produce a television commercial.

The ad will feature movie characters from Disney-Pixar first ever 3D film titled Up and the Aflac Duck demonstrating how Aflac policies help protect you when injury or illness threatens to derail your dreams.

Aflac also created a new Up – themed paint scheme, featuring Disney-Pixar characters, for the Aflac 99 Ford Fusion that will be driven by Carl Edwards at the Southern 500 NASCAR race at Darlington Raceway. The race will be nationally televised on the FOX Network on 9 May, 2009, where the new ad will debut.

"We are pleased to have partnered with Disney-Pixar to create our first new ad using the tagline ‘We’ve Got You Under Our Wing.’ This commercial reminds all of us about the importance of having a financial plan for life’s unexpected events," said Aflac senior vice president and chief marketing officer Jeff Charney.
