Origin

In 1997, 17 year old Swede Daniel Malmedahl had a serious interest in imitating the sounds produced by different internal combustion engines. When friends heard Daniel's impressions, they immediately identified the comedic qualities of his talent and posted a recording of Daniel in action to a website. Soon, a researcher for a Swedish television programme found the recording and persuaded Daniel to perform the sound live on their show. 1997 is a common year starting on Wednesday of the Gregorian calendar. ...

From there, Daniel's recording began appearing on peer to peer file sharing networks and websites under the filename "2TAKTARE.MP3" ("2taktare" being Swedish for "2-stroke").

The two-stroke cycle of an internal combustion engine differs from the more common four-stroke cycle by having only two strokes (linear movements of the piston) instead of four, although the same four operations (intake, compression, power, exhaust) still occur. ...

The Insanity Test animation is responsible for some of the success of Daniel Malmedahl's sound effects.

The sound effect was quickly incorporated into Flash animations that spread virally over the internet. The most notable example was an "Insanity test", which required test subjects to keep a straight face while staring at a picture of a Formula 1 car and listening to the sound effect. Test subjects were informed, "If you start laughing consider yourself legally insane".

In 2003, when fellow Swede Erik Wernquist encountered the sound effect, he was inspired to create the 3D animation The Annoying Thing to accompany it using the popular LightWave 3d modelling application. The animation was a popular attraction at Erik's website, but the sound was only credited to Anonymous. 2003 is a common year starting on Wednesday of the Gregorian calendar. ...

Eventually, word reached Daniel that his sound effect was in use in a well-known animation, he contacted Erik, apparently giving an impromptu performance to confirm his claims. Erik was convinced, and gave due credit to Daniel for his creation.


Ringtone

In 2004, the Germany based Jamba! group (ultimately owned by Verisign) licensed the animation and sound for distribution as a mobile phone ringtone. Jamba!, trading under names such as Jamster!, RingtoneKing, and others, accompanied the release of the ringtone with a barrage of television, internet, radio and print advertising, making it the most recognisable commercially available ringtone in the United Kingdom. Jamba! decided to market the ringtone as The Crazy Frog rather than the existing title.

The frog replaced the rarely seen Rhino and Rat as Jamba!'s mascot. Attempting to repeat the Frog's success, Jamba! commissioned new animated creature ringtones, Sweety the Chick and Nessie the Dragon.

Controversy

Advertising

In February 2005, a number of complaints were submitted to the United Kingdom's Advertising Standards Authority regarding Jamba!'s advertising campaign, complaining that Crazy Frog appeared to have genitalia. Some parents complained that this made inappropriate viewing for children, claiming that the commercial had prompted embarrassing questions. Complaints were also submitted about the frequency the advert appeared on television, up to twice an hour across most of the day (source (http://news.scotsman.com/entertainment.cfm?id=551242005)), with some channels showing it more than once per commercial break. 2005 : January - February - March - April - May - June - July - August - September - October - November - December- → Ongoing events • Iraqi legislative election • Bill C-38 (Canada gay marriage) • Tsunami relief Upcoming events • March 11: Red Nose Day 2005 in the UK.

A male Caucasian toddler child A child (plural: children) is a young human. ...


The ASA did not uphold the complaints, pointing out that the advert was already classified as inappropriate for airing during children's television programmes as it contained a premium rate telephone number, adding that it was for the broadcaster to decide how often an advert should be shown. However, Jamba! voluntarily censored the character's genital area in later broadcasts of its advertisements. The full adjudication (PDF) (http://www.asa.org.uk/NR/rdonlyres/ECE03B9D-119D-4150-8F22-48ADADD9AC09/0/ASA_Broadcast_Rulings_2Feb05.pdf) is available online.

In April 2005, television viewers complained about misleading adverts produced by Jamba!, trading as Jamster! and RingtoneKing. Viewers were concerned that it was not made sufficiently clear that they were subscribing to a service, rather than paying a one-time fee for their ringtone. The complaints were upheld, the full adjudication (PDF) (http://www.asa.org.uk/NR/rdonlyres/8311D4FA-1657-4440-AA83-6285F6CFED19/0/Broadcast_rulings_6_April_05.pdf) is available online. 2005 : January - February - March - April - May - June - July - August - September - October - November - December- → Ongoing events • Iraqi legislative election • Bill C-38 (Canada gay marriage) • Tsunami relief • Cedar Revolution in Lebanon • Tulip Revolution in Kyrgyzstan • German Visa Affair 2005 • Expo 2005 in Nagoya, Japan • Terri Schiavo controversy • Pope John Paul II...

In May 2005, the ASA were inundated with new complaints by viewers regarding the continuous airing of the latest Crazy Frog advertisements. As the authority had already adjudicated on the matter and confirmed the matter was not within its remit, the unusual step was taken of adding a notice to their online and telephone complaints system informing viewers that Jamster!-related complaints should be directed towards the broadcaster or the regulator, Ofcom. (source: [1] (http://news.scotsman.com/entertainment.cfm?id=551242005), [2] (http://www.thesun.co.uk/article/0,,2-2005230259,00.html)) 2005 : January - February - March - April - May - June - July - August - September - October - November - December- → Deaths in May May 26: Eddie Albert May 25: Ismail Merchant simba the bear May 25: Sunil Dutt May 25: Graham Kennedy May 22: Thurl Ravenscroft May 21: Howard Morris May 21: Subodh Mukherjee May 21: Stephen...

Computer virus

In March 2005, anti-virus vendors discovered the W32/Crog.worm computer virus (a contraction of Crazy Frog), which spreads through file-sharing networks and MSN Messenger, exploiting the Crazy Frog's notoriety with a promise of an animation depicting his demise. (source [3] (http://vil.nai.com/vil/content/v_132209.htm), [4] (http://securityresponse.symantec.com/avcenter/venc/data/w32.serflog.a.html)). 2005 : January - February - March - April - May - June - July - August - September - October - November - December- → Ongoing events • Iraqi legislative election • Bill C-38 (Canada gay marriage) • Tsunami relief • Cedar Revolution in Lebanon • Tulip Revolution in Kyrgyzstan • German Visa Affair 2005 • Expo 2005 in Nagoya, Japan • Terri Schiavo controversy • Pope John Paul II...

Crazy Frog's popularity peaked in the spring and summer of 2005, when the full-length single of the "Axel F" ringtone, which was created by members of the German production team Bass Bumpers and based on Harold Faltermeyer's instrumental theme for Beverly Hills Cop, topped the U.K. singles charts for several weeks.
In 2006, the Crazy Frog phenomenon was still healthy in Europe, with toys and gadgets available and a potential TV series in the works; that summer, the Frog dropped another album, aptly named More Crazy Hits.
A string of Crazy Frog merchandise was released in the UK [13], under the name "The Annoying Thing" due to copyright and licensing restrictions.
