Crazy Frog Remix

The original ‘Crazy Frog’ ringtone (a blatent rip-off of the insanity test) was annoying enough, and the insessant advertising made it even worse. My only relief was the ‘death of crazy frog’ video floating around on the internet.
But now, we have the Crazy Frog Version 2.0 Remix. Someone please kill me now.
Update: Please see The Origins of Crazy Frog.

  1. Actually the insanity test was a rip off of the crazy frog, but yes oh god its annoying.

  2. Ask someone in Germany about it, from the German blogs I read it seems they’ve been tortured with this stuff for much longer than us here in the UK. Jamster is just the UK subsidiary of a German company.
    Luckily I don’t have a TV and only listen to BBC radio, so I’ve escaped the advertising so far…

  3. Argh, this is so damn annoying. It was funny when it was applied to the picture of a F1 racing driver. That was just random. But now, oh no!
    It’s on TV with advertising of it for a ringtone, with an animation frog on a bike (which is quite well rendered infact). It’s on web pages with flash. Luckily I’ve become quick enough to block the flash before the sound kicks-in, when I notice the artwork. I’ve also heard it permeate from commerical radio from time to time.
    Enough is enough, make it stop. PLEASE!

  4. I WANT THE FROG TO DIE! NOW!

  5. Armin: Jamster is actually a wholly owned subsidary of VeriSign, the registry for .net and .com domains. It’s not German, as far as I know.

  6. Neil: Technically correct, but missing some background. Jamster is a subsidiary or sister company of Jamba, which is the German version of it. It used to be owned by the Samwer brothers (who still run it) from Germany. And they sold it to Verisign a couple of month ago.
    You can read some background on the Jamba website (in English). You’ll see Jamster listed in the links at the bottom left.
    They pulled a similar stunt a few years ago: After a visit to the US where they heard about eBay they quickly opened an auction platform/website in Germany (If I remember correctly called Alando or something like that). A couple of month later they sold it to eBay and eBay used it to get into the German market.

  7. All very fascinating… but it’s still bloody annoying!!
    Don’t even start me off about that little yellow chick thing! Argh!
    Where’s that stress ball? Happy thoughts! Happy Place! 😛

  8. Actually the Crazy Frog sound was NOT ripped off by Jamster. The racing car insanity test was originally created by Daniel Malmedahl to get a laugh out of his friends, and quickly spread around the world.
    Daniel and his friend Erik Wernquist then created the idea of the Crazy Frog which they SOLD to Jamster. Daniel is making money off the sales through Jamster, and it was all done above board.
    This of course doesn’t make it any less annoying.

  13. The insanity test is actually a remake of an even older flash, which just has a picture of a static racecar with the sound playing in the background. I remember seeing it aages ago.

    Well, I’m convinced. A good point, and well made!

  21. I hate it because it’s so annoyingly repetitive, and with so many people having it, it just gets more ubiquitus and annoying.

  22. does any1 know the link the the crazy frog remix!
    i h8 the normal crazy frog! it bus soooo much!

  23. the inssannity test was pretty damn funny to start of with but however it did get pretty damn annoying after a while and what quack was saying about it being sold to jamster i think is correct. however jamster are making crazy frog too big and it now seems to be pissing everyone off.. oh yeah and xxphycoxx just because its had loads of sales does not mean its good. it just means they have been advertiving it everywhere. it seems to be on very nearly every site saying GET IT NOW!….. what a bunch of bo****.. crazy frog is a bit sad really.. how many people agree with me??????

  24. yeah even i agree its startin 2 get old now!

  27. Can any tell me where I can download the crazy frog Axel F. Realtone for free?
    I haven’t found it yet on the internet. Everytime I end up at Jamster and I have to pay there!
    Hopefully somybody has a free download link for me?
    Peter

  28. the fact they are so popular just shows how many people in the world have an IQ below that of a glass of water.
    It pisses me off more the fact the company has apparntly made millions from this, all from chavs i no doubt who probably stole the money anyway so i wonder if we cud bring jamster for money laundering?

  29. [Jamster Petition](http://www.PetitionOnline.com/jamster/)
    Stop Jamster. For Great Justice

  30. I think the craz frog is a brilliant ringtone. Best Ever!!!! Go Jamster!!!!!!!!!

  31. Jamster , WE ALL LOVE YOU .
    GO GO GO jamster
    ***************** Love=Jamster ************

  32. Hi!!!
    I think the Crazy Frog Axel F is good but the origional Version is a bit Bad!

  33. i think that the crazy frog remix is fantastic!!!!! the first was cool but this is BRILLIANT!!! i want it really bad and the nessie the dragon and sweetie the chick!

  34. the insanity test and the crazy frog sound was 1st seen on 00fun then it got copied everywhere, n they sold it as somtink completely different which i find rong cus tha bloody ting is annoyin!!! i cud deal wiv a stupid crazy frog even if nobody did no where it originally came from which i found annoyin cus every1 thort i wus insane grrr!!! now the stupid remixes n everything is blowin it outta proportion let the frog die, n the insanity test can make the annoying memory of this sutpid dumb frog live on!

  35. b33r you dumb prick. I followed your gay-ass link to albinoblacksheep, and it said there was a trojan embedded in it. Dont use that fuckin link!

  36. OK, maybe it was sceptre, but still, you’re an ass licking prick. I hope you the freakin trojan.
    Cause i didn’t. Unlike some people, i have a decent virus checker.

  37. Thanks, Solaris – that page is indeed infected with a trojan. It would only affect you if you didn’t have a popup blocker, however I’ve removed the link.

  38. Not only is the tv adverts so damn annoying and repetitive but also the company behind it are ripping off anyone foolish to actually download it. For anyone happy to waste their credits on such trash then go ahead and make some Germans rich. Apparently once you download a ringtone you are a ‘member’ of a club (how nice) and they will then send you text messages at YOUR cost! Personally I would like to go to the homes of the people making the money out of this and blast crazy frog at full decibel outside their homes 24/7

    The fact that you can’t spell in correct English says to me that you have an IQ lower than all those people who bought the crazy frog/crazy frog remix/or any other crazy frog there is.
    But I must agree it is bone-numbingly annoying. It was only funny in the context of the Insanity Test (where it was playing to a static picture of a F1 car.)

  40. i think its brilliant and everyone should here it.

  41. This Crazy Frog is a FUCKING joke!!!!!!
    STOP IT IMMEDIATELEY!!!!!!

  42. A couple years ago there was a file called “crazy Chinese guy making f1 car sounds” floating around on the internet. The bloke was sat in front of a webcam with an imaginary steering wheel making sounds similar to the crazy frog ring tone.
    Anyone remember that?

  46. Crazy Frog hops to chart success

    I’m no fan of Crazy Frog, or Oasis, but how an Earth did Crazy Frog beat Oasis? An annoying ringtone based around Beverly Hills tune, which to be fair is quite good, but then a frog making an annoying noise while flashing his bits, how on Earth is th…
