News Corp is killing Crazy Frog, along with the brands Jamba and Jamster. News Corp's mobile unit today announced a reorganisation of its business to "extend its global leadership in the mobile content industry". And yes, the hideously annoying frog - the first real star of mobile content, according to Jamba CEO Maura Montanaro …
...and nothing of value was lost.
...and nothing of value was lost.
Also, I have that bloody "song" in my head now. I hope you're proud of yourselves.
Paris because she's not even close to how annoying that bloody Frog is.
"Other vendors will probably still continue to sell the Crazy Frog ringtone....."
Not if they don't want bricks through their fucking windows they won't!
You just made me lose The Game.
I hadn't thought about that bugger for months and now him (and those bloody Jamster ads) are firmly implanted in my head again. Thanks, Reg !
I'm an athiest...
I'm an atheist, but thank God that thing will be no more! Hallelujah!
Mine's the coat with the phone with the NORMAL ringtone on it.
There are those who hear the tune and think "Beverly Hills Cop - cool!", and those who hear the tune and say "Ding Ding" at the end of the riff.
Those who do the latter should not be astonished to find themselves punched, hard, in the face. Several times.
Ming ming ming
mauuuuuuu ming bing bing ming ming
That is all
My ring tone...
... is still 'Leftbank': the Vision On gallery theme!
I too developed murderous tendencies when the great unwashed played the fupping Crazy Frog ring tone all the fupping time. A particularly amusing and inventive B2Tan did a piss-take of the Jamster ads. I might have it somewhere...
A bim bim bim bim bim boooooooooooooooooooooooooooom...
The Frog is Dead
Long Live Death!!!!!!
About bloody time too!
Ah, so you've not seen & heard the new Crazy Cow ringtone with video then.
I felt a disturbance...
As if a billion voices suddenly cried out in joy. And then went on celebrating.
Mine's quite obviously this one:
There is only one possible response...
I use this as my sort of personal ethos.
Surprised you didn't say
"Carzy Frog Croaks"
Brrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrimmm B'ding b'ding b'ding b'din,din din, din, DRRRRRRRRRRRInnnnnng!
Sadly, I have not heard crazy frog, but....
... here in the States they always play the same passage from Vivaldi's "The Four Seasons" while they connect your mobile call. I loved "The Four Seasons", until I'd heard it for the 5000th time.
Anything can be done to death.
Heh, at one point while between jobs I had an offer from Jamba. I declined politely, didn't want that on my resume. In protest to all the fuckwits in the office, my ringtone is http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Image:Whitenoisesound.ogg
Cuts through background noise like a rusty saw, even in the server room.
the companies that made a living by fraud* have rebranded themselves!
i know fox are a bit iffy, but i'm surprised that they want to be associated with them.
*conning children into signing up for a subscription service when they were trying to buy a single, albeit annoying, ringtone - what would you call it?
God bless the frog
Was always a hoot using it in the office. It made several grown men cry and dedicated pacifists erupt in fits of rage.
Da ding ding ding ding...
Jamba is constantly undercutting itself
Their latest thing here in Germany is a mobile app called (translated)
featuring an animated gif of a woman (two to choose from) licking a steamy pane of glass, meant to look as though she was licking the inside of your screen. Tell me about quality entertainment.
The Sound of Silence.
My ringtone is an orchestral rendition of '4 minutes 33 seconds' by John Cage.
It annoys no-one.
People that come up worth these ring tones should be made to listen to them for six hours. If they come out in sane institutionalize them . If them come out like nothing thing is wrong, lock them up, they bat shit insane.
No link to something like...
Marriage made in hell
Fox/NewsCorp and the Crazy Frog ? Jeez, how much hate can the world bring to bear ? Is a nuclear assault a little OTT ?
Are a tax on the stupid.
@Anonymous USAnian Coward
While you're at it, could you ask your fellow countrymen to refrain from playing Pachelbel's Canon in every lift, hotel foyer and cafe in the entire nation? Something subtle - 1970 by The Stooges, for example - would be fine.
There is a Crazy Frog vid I'd like to see
It would involve a blender.
The hamster dance ringtone!! But surely that will be done to death too :)
Good riddance to the frog! Hooray!!
I spit on your ring-tone marketing...
while enjoying the Viennese waltz in all its non-polyphonic glory on my nokia 6310i
Vive la neo-luddites!
icon: no-one wants to steal my phone and I haven't had to replace it *ever*!
Re: There is only one possible response...
Amen to that. I work at a mobile-phone-related company, and have that strip enlarged, laminated and hung above my desk. If only more people would subscribe to it.
You mean no more "Last Christmas" atrocities?
Ring, ding ding ding ding ding,
ding ding ding ding, ding ding
Ring, ding ding ding ding,
ding ding ding ding
[sound of rapidly receding footsteps and maniacal laughter]
twat the crazy frog
