Crazy Frog Update

We here at The Corner are nothing if not thorough. When we find something we like, we research it until the very thought of the thing makes us want to spew. (must come from spending more than a decade in school) Anyway, we...well, ok I was curious what the genesis of the Crazy Frog was, so I found out. And I'm sure you are just dying to know it. Well hold on to your hats, Gentle Readers, cause here it comes.

In 1997 a 17 year old Swede by the name of Daniel Malmedahl was playing around with his computer, and he recorded his imitation of a friend's moped. It hovered in realative obscurity on the internet until a guy named ERIK WERNQUIST made an animation to go with the sounds called The Annoying Thing ( http://www.turboforce3d.com/annoying/ ) in 2003. Now, the song and video are from a German group called The Bass Bumpers ( http://www.danceartistinfo.com/bassbump.htm ) who sampled the audio from The Annoying Thing, mixed it with their version of Axel F, and released it into the airwaves. And the rest...is history.

There you go. More than you ever wanted to know about the Crazy Frog.

You're welcome. ;-)
