Crazy Frog, the blue-colored amphibian that ’90s babies will remember watching on MTV in the ’00s, is making a grand comeback.
The animated character is best known for his track “Axel F,” which is the 19th most popular video on YouTube with over 3.1 billion views as of writing. The viral 2005 tune was a popular ringtone and took over regions like the U.K., topping charts for weeks.
Crazy Frog’s comeback will arrive in the form of a YouTube mashup of TikTok trends. Wolfgang Boss, president of A&R for Sony Music, shared with BBC: “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.” The upcoming release will be put together by the original producer Reinhard “Voodoo” Raith.
Crazy Frog’s newest video is slated to drop on December 10. While we wait, take a trip down memory lane with “Axel F” above and “Crazy Frog In The House” below.
