Crazy Frog Q

If you'd see Crazy Frog crossing the street... would you brake or run over it?

Re: Crazy Frog Q

I picked other. Run over it, brake, reverse over it, brake, run over it and repeat until fuel runs out.
Its gone way to far with the frog. What idiots are still even slightly amused by it??????

Blood boiling just thinking about that fecking frog and all those ringtone ads on the tv these days.

Re: Crazy Frog Q

The Frog is okay but the noise is getting pretty tiresome. Now I am a believer in a punishment fitting the crime so I would subdue him in an Irwin-esque style and hogtie the son of a gun!
I would proceed to play white noise to the little bas*ard until his eyes bulged even worse than Makosi from the current Big Brother series.
Then I would attempt my own particular brand of trachaeotomy (not for any particular purpose) using a scaffolding pole followed by supplying air courtesy of a large tyre compressor until the flaming thing exploded.

Or maybe i would just put him in a pan of cold water and then boil it up so he did that stupid frog thing and sat in it thinking how pleasurable it is to have a hot tub until his organs boiled!

I quite like the guy really!

Re: Crazy Frog Q

I'd probably have a heart attack ... seeing a cartoon character walking in the street may be too much to handle ....

Either that or the local brewery have hit the right formula but then I definitely wouldn't be driving ... I'd be lucky to be standing!

I'd pull the fuse for the abs, then run it down, turn round, get up to a fair speed then anchor up just before the front wheel hits it, causing it to be spread out along the road for a fair few yards. Justice is served.

Re: Crazy Frog Q

Run over it, then brake, reverse over it, run over it again, take a shotgun from the boot, shoot it with both barrels, get back into the car and drive over it again.

Some interesting statistics from yesterday's Guardian:

"Part of the art of great media buying is to get as many people as possible to see an ad the ideal number of times, and to minimise those seeing it too little or too often. We do not need the data to know we have seen the Jamster Crazy Frog ad too often, but the actual statistics are shocking. In May alone, it bought 73,716 spots across all TV channels and spent about £8m, just under half of which was spent on ITV. Eighty-seven per cent of the population saw it an average of 26 times, 15% of the spots were topped and tailed in the same break and 66% were in consecutive ad breaks. If you think that is excessive, 10% of the population were exposed to it more than 60 times. We are talking frequency abuse on an unprecedented scale."

....Actually when it first started it was funny and very clever advertising... but there are limits!!!

Re: Crazy Frog Q

This from holy moly:

"Advertisers/media groups get jittery because the Jamster ads are so annoying they make people switch channels so no-one wants to share ad break space with them. This means that TV channels are losing advertising revenue if they keep running them"

Have a look here and here.

Re: Crazy Frog Q

ed77 I have to disagree. It was NEVER clever and amusing. Honest, it is terrible rubbish and to think people are fool enough to buy it. But each to their own I guess. It just ain't my cup of tea.

It was not my wish to start an argument on this because it is not important to me at all. When i first saw the crazy frog advert it was funny the first few times. it is now very annoying.

If the creators of crazy frog intention was to make money from an idea (which I think it probably was!) then they have been very successful. they have created a "new" product and sold it very well. in doing this they have used just about every trick in the advertising book. for example: evolution of the product (from ringtone to hit record), viral marketing (email) , use of "free" publicity (about his genitals) etc. that has been clever marketing , maybe not very agreeable but still clever.

Re: Crazy Frog Q

Too strange to believe this.

I just thought I'd be clever and google a quote from The Exorcist so off I went and googled. Chose a movie mistakes site that had Exorcist on and clicked....

Who the flip should turn up on my screen????

That was a truly freakish moment. You couldn't make it up.

That frog is the spawn of Satan.

Re: Crazy Frog Q

He's omnipotent?? Well from what we've seen from the ads he doesn't have much to get up anyway.



I'll get my coat, for so many reasons.
