Every advert break on TV has at least two adverts for this ringtone. Not only is it annoying it is extremely expensive. Kids are downloading it believing they are buying a ringtone and then find they have signed up for ring tones to be sent at regular intervals and often have run up debts before they are aware. It appeals to the younger end who often have no concept of read the small print and even though it says you have to be 16 to buy there is no way to actually check this. I was annoyed this morning when GMTV ran a programme long pol on the ringtone playing it several times an hour to get people to vote but in so doing were giving frre publicity to the guy who is raking in the money.

It's gonna get worse. Did you see the news that the damn thing has a record out, which is outselling Coldplay and is likely to go to number 1?

I know we're not really interested in the commercial mainstream here, but it's going to be very hard to avoid. From the bit I've heard, it sounds like the Beverley Hills Cop theme, Axel F, which was irritating enough already.

My father likes it and he's 80 years old.

I like it as well, its these ones that don't have a sense of humour. however there are some things that I don't like and that bastard mobile phones, and the people that use them. for exapmle when you go out to a place for your lunch/dinner/bus/trian or whatever or go to a concert, there is always some dickhead who has not switched off their moblie phone, and when it rings instead of going out of the room so no one can hear you talking/shouting, they just sit there shouting to the person on the the other phone, why do they need to shout I mean is the other person deaf.

I have a mobile phone myself, however I only use it when I'm telling my dad when I am coming home from a club which I visit every 2 weeks.

I'm with you on the mobile phones, Tam. They do have thier uses and I sometimes use one but a lot of people are really inconsiderate with them... Which brings me back to ringtones...

Surely people don't get the things just to entertain themself when their phone rings but to "entertain" those around them too. Seems like an encouragement to be unsociable in public places...

I'm quite ammused by the fuss about this ad. I'd bet half those whinging are those that inflict their noises in places where I can't turn it off - at least I can switch my own tv off. I haven't seen it yet though - I don't watch a lot of tv so it may be a while yet before I catch it (if it hasn't been stopped).

The whole idea of individual ring tones is that you can identify your phone when it goes off... Last week on the train that bloody frog started up and five, yes FIVE people scrabbled in their bags for their phones.

Apparently there is a raven called Thor at the Tower of London, that has learned to imitate mobile phones - I'm going there on Friday to see if he can do the crazy frog tones too!

Yes, that's why companies spend millions on advertising just one and people follow the craze...


If one really wanted to be unique, why not write ones own? I don't know how you get them on the phones but I've just had a look at Mobile Music Polyphonic ($29.99 shareware) and at first glance, it looks to be simple to make them from midi, wav and mp3...

Sadly the bloody crazy frog has outsold Coldplay by 3-1.
I'm pleased to say none of my immediate family has purchased it, although one sister of mine is now into "Weeble and Bob", something I'm told is a brainchild of MTV, she now sits on my PC trying to record these insane clips on her phone to use as her ringtone!
They are quite infectious though, I'm starting to find them funny.

From some research I did a couple of weeks back (seeking ways to kill the Frog) I came across some info which says that it wasn't the Public Standards folks who blacked his privates, but the ringtone company. The Powers That Be had some complaints but nothing to warrant them doing anything about it. It was the ring-tone company who decided to do it off their own bat thinking that people would think it was the Nasty Censors at work and then buy the service in protest.

I remember the pre-black-out frog and, quite honestly, I think this was a matter of Hiding His Shame. With privates like that, at least he won't be likely to breed effectively ...

I'll betcha frogs don't even have privates.

Last month we spent a few days on a houseboat on the St John's River in NE Florida. The sound of the frogs was quite remarkable - many different pitches and timings, and no regularity to it at all.   Now I know where rock drummers get their ideas.

I haven't heard the Crazy Frog ringtone, but I'm sure the sound of it is nothing like the sound of that chorus of real (or should I say sane?)frogs.
