This is actually currently number 1 in the UK charts.

OMG, this can't be happening. After last summer's 'MAY AH HIIEEEEEEEEEEEE, MAYAAHOO' the music industry has reached a new depth... :roll:

I can't stand those adds on television for the ringtones, but releasing it as a single oO

Jamster are definitly too blame for this. They paid for a MASSIVE advertising campaign. There was a time you could escape the crazy frog by watching major TV networks, but not anymore. They flooded every major channel with that commercial over the past few weeks, during nightime, daytime and even prime time.
Every show, every commercial break. It was there.

Coldplay was a new release, it knocked Oasis off number 1....but I guess that's even more satisfying.

Yeah it's the same here.... very sad.

But what's even worse is that such a 'song' is able to become number 1 in the charts. Seeing a quality band such as Coldplay can be knocked off the number one slide by something that can be done by a 12 year old with Magix Music Maker while using a well known movie tune... :?

Jamster sells ring tones for cell phones featuring a animated frog. If you have cable you have seen the ad for this thing it says something like Dial *123 for the insane frog *345 for gangster rabbit and so forth
