Crazy Frog is a character used in the marketing of a ring tone based on The Annoying Thing, a computer animation created by Erik Wernquist. Marketed by the ringtone provider Jamba! (known as Jamster! in English-speaking markets and China), the animation was originally created to accompany a sound effect produced by Daniel Malmedahl while attempting to imitate the sound of a two-stroke moped engine. It is sometimes referred to (especially in the "Axel F" video) as "The Most Annoying Thing in the World" or as "The Annoying Thing".
The Crazy Frog spawned a worldwide hit single with a remix of "Axel F", which reached the number one spot in the UK, Australia, New Zealand and most of Europe. The subsequent album Crazy Frog Presents Crazy Hits and second single "Popcorn" also enjoyed worldwide chart success, and the release of a second album entitled Crazy Frog Presents More Crazy Hits was announced in 2,006. The Crazy Frog has also spawned a range of merchandise and toys, and a video game, all of which were very popular for Christmas 2,005. Negotiations are also underway for a TV series based on the character.
