Anyone know an advert with a funny creature on a motorcycle
doing a really funny noise that's progressively getting louder and funnier

Does anyone know what I'm talking about and what the website address is?

It's hilarious. I can't remember what the advert was about but I think there's a website with a ringtone sounding similar to it. I initially heard it on Virgin Radio and then saw a bit on TV about it.

It's a frog and it's REALLY annoying! I'm sick of hearing it everywhere I go.

It's not even new either... I first came across it over a year ago; it was a spoof comparing a real F1 engine sound to this sound.

Anyone else hate it as much as I do?

I too recall the F1 sound effects and I'm sure that there was a link to it from Foo once upon a time. I recall it as only just amusing - something you'd watch/listen to just the once.

However, for the last four to five months we've had to suffer this sound - in the guise of the 'crazy frog' - ever since some (now wealthy) bright spark thought it would make an ideal ring tone...

The 'frog' has spawned (!) much frustration and anger among normally civilised and peaceful communities; I have heard ads/jingles on commercial radio in which the 'frog' is shot - repeatedly. Normally sane individuals are on the brink; society at-large could be in danger of collapse (okay, maybe that's laying it on a bit thick)...

On the other hand, believe it or not, over the weekend I heard a radio-mixed rap track which incorporated the darling creatures' catchy call...

It is amazing how something like this can spread like a plague across the web and then leap, one would be tempted to say 'frog-like', from one technology platform to another..;-)

No it's not - the worse one was this morning, while taking a quiet coffee in Ottakers, this flaming moron had it on his phone just behind me. Made me spill my coffee!

Someone posted a link to it on another forum the other day, otherwise I would have safely avoided the whole annoying mess.

Basically, it's a rip-off of a 20 year old Rainier Beer commercial. I hope someone sues the current perpetrator out of existence.

The 'crazy frog' is coming out as a dance music single soon! :o

That may have been the demo version I heard on the radio..:-)

For those interested, here, courtesy of the BBC, is the potted history of the 'Crazy Frog' [news.bbc.co.uk]...

Anyone have a recipe for frogs legs?

;-)

The crazy frog is actually making a two-stroke kart noise! Basically because it's not changing gear but the engine is bigger than a 50cc scooter. If that guy really intended it to be an imitation of his mates mopeds, he got it wrong as hell! If there's any karters on the forum it's closest to a JICA engine, if not nevermind, lol. There's no way it's an F1 engine, you can tell it's not a four-stroke.
