Crazy Frog Advertising Irritates But Brings Big Bucks

Jamster's crazy frog commercial has been named the most irritating of 2005. The company spent £45 million on advertising in the UK last year, including £10M in May. That means the frog's annoying moped sound was aired 83 times an hour...

Interestingly, the bulk of media buying went to TV and press with a pithy £39,591 on online advertising. It seems to have paid off though as the frog grabbed over 30% of the UK ringtones market. M&C Saatchi concludes that "traditional media channels remain heavy hitters with UK youth.”
