You got a problem with this cute guy? :D






J/K, whoever came up with the idea, and subsequent TV ads should be taken out and shot... (in the kneecaps, at least...)

Can honestly say that I haven't seen a Crazy Frog since Christmas - and even then, I only saw one ad for it. I thought it had quietly become extinct already...

Alternatively, since it's summer, rather than sign the petition, why don't you just go and do something less boring instead (in the words of summer holiday television!) ;)

the frog has been flooding uk television for ages (as still is) and recently they made a "remix" of it. enough is enough.

could you put up with this during every single commercial break while watching tv?
no, see reason b. above. i can't stand tv, only have one for watching movies, maybe to play some games if i get a GameCube this summer

I must be watching the wrong channels (or the right ones perhaps if I'm not seeing it). On the other hand, I'd sign a petition to get rid of all those 'in debt, have county court judgements, still want to have a Caribbean holiday and get more into debt? phone us' adverts...

those adverts are annoying, but they are easier to ignore when compared to the crazy frog.

heh, i'm slowly getting used to those ones - they come on a lot on UKGold + ITV2. thankfully when im watching tv i mainly watch bbc so i tend to avoid most ads. i know it's crel but i always laugh at the 'national accident helpline' ad where the woman falls on some food on the kitchen floor. all i have to say is LOOK WHERE YOU'RE GOING YOU SILLY FOOL!

the crazy frog ads tend to come on most on vh1/mtv etc. literally every ad has one.

oh, and at the moment my favourite is the kfc ad with the women in the call centre. i cant believe people complained! that's the funniest ad i've seen on tv in ages (along with the other kfc ad with the family singing). their food may be greasy, but their ads are cool :)

i too am shocked to hear that people actually buy the crap, but it cost a lot of money to advertise on tv, how on earth do they make money out of it. or is there a scam in this?
