  2. Heh, I had that as my msn avatar for a while... ugh I hate that thing. My sister wants to get the single... :help: It's not just the UK TBers who have to deal with stoopid Crazy Frog!

    Haha, I'm so happy to see that. Although if one good thing did come of it, it's that i did learn a killer version of the Beverly Hills Cop theme.

    I must be turning into a hermit or something - I've never actually had the misfortune to hear it! And, from what I've heard, I'd like to keep it that way!

    You are the envy of every person with channel 4 and all SKY channels.

    I hate this. I try to just laugh or else i will just cry, yet to no avail.

    I have C4 and Sky, and yet all I watch is BBC1 for Doctor Who and Eastenders. And even those I could download! Thanks for pointing out that I could be saving £40 a month! :D

    First ******* Schnappi das Krokodil, now this friggin' toad!

    They first advertise the ringtone, and a month later they bring out the single. Aarg :mad:

    Why?

    They advertise that terrible Jammster thing here in the US too. They had ads on Hotmail for forever, and I saw some terrible commercials for it on tv yesterday (I rarely watch tv, so I don't know how often the ads come up).
     
  10. I have to say, I did find the idea of the Crazy frog single beating Coldplay to no.1 rather amusing:D

    especially as the Coldplay single is so dull- just "clocks" recycled....

    am i right in thinking Chris Martin didn't take Johnathon Ross' joke about Coldplay being "almost as good as the Crazy frog" too well?
     
  11. Heh, heh heh :D Cheers for that.

    Its about time that frog had whats coming to him! As for the single beating Coldplay, that turned out to be quite amusing.

    OMG, just realised they're actually selling ring tones mocking ring tones! I mean they're pretty funny, but even so, where will the ringtone madness stop!?

    Does anyone here know anyone who actually likes this Jamster cr*p?
     
  14. Ack That frog aint even funny anymore- although the OFLC in Australia desided it best to cover his wang with a the blury spot, what a sad world :spit:


    It's not new, I heared it years and years ago- the incarnation I say; you actually had to look at a picture of a red Fomular 1 car (early 90's Farrari) and try not to laugh at it.
     
  15. Yeah, they censored out the wee fella's pecker here too! Madness...

    So, a goal-keeper eh?

    I dont know about you guys, but my phone goes "beep beep beep beep."
     
  17. yeah, my phone's too basic to even play ringtones.
    I prefer my music coming out of a hifi or an instrument...

    what I hate is people on buses/trains/public places letting the ringtone play for ages before answering- as if we're supposed to be impressed :rolleyes:

  19. I asked myself why an Aussie has an Irish name too.
    If I hear anyone's phone riging this ringtone, I make a mental note to find out where they live and kill them while they sleep. But normally I just tell them to f*ck off.

    I think he was a little angry at that. He did do an impression of the Crazy Frog after every song, so mebbe he was trying to make a point.
