Everyone’s favourite blue animated amphibian Crazy Frog, will be riding his imaginary motorcycle back onto our screens via YouTube on December 10th
It has been 16 years since he first revved his way to the top of the charts in the UK for four weeks. The original single did not stop there, taking the world by storm and topping charts globally.
Fast forward to 2009 when Crazy Frogs rendition of Axel f – the theme to Beverly Hills Cop famously beat Coldplay to the UK number one spot. The video now has over 3.1 billion views and is the 19th most popular video in YouTube history.
The long awaited comeback track will feature snippets of hits made famous by TikTok trends. Wolfgang Boss, president of A&R for Sony Music has made the decision to release new music following an increase in interest on YouTube. Boss hopes that the new track and video will be able to find a new generation of Crazy Frog fans in an age where the “ringtone is completely dead”, and what better place to start than the very platform that viral music is created on.
Boss said in a recent interview “When we started Crazy Frog, there was no TikTok, it didn’t exist, But right now TikTok is super important. It’s basically the number one platform for people to share new music and funny things connected with music.”
Boss will be honouring tradition and creating the comeback with the producers original DJ producer Reinhard “Voodoo” Raith.
