The Song Review
Crazy Frog or commonly known as The Annoying Thing, is a CGI animated avatar and musician from Sweden. Crazy Frog’s Axel F topped the UK music charts in the year 2005. However, it did not gain much popularity internationally. Later on, it was uploaded on YT on June 17, 2009, through Crazy Frog’s official YouTube channel. In this way, it was reintroduced to a new generation who just loved it.
The number was a massive commercial success. It was groundbreaking for the Crazy Frog Group because it became their first single international hit Crazy Frog’s Axel F became the UK’s Third Best Selling in the year 2005. Plus, it was on the UK Singles Chart for four straight weeks. Now, it stands at the 65th Best Selling in the UK for the 2000s Decade.
This track was produced by Andreas Dohmeyer and Matthias Wagner. Other contributors were Bass Bumper, Wolfgang Boss, and Jamster. You will find the original vocals of Daniel Malmedahl from the 1997 Crazy Frog recording.
Tracing Crazy Frog Axel F Origins
Do you know that the origins of Axel F can be traced back to 1984? Yes! It was an instrumental beat for the 1984 movie Beverly Hills Cop, performed by Harold Falter Meyer. This song stood as the No. 1 smashing hit in 1985.
The title of this theme was an inspiration from Eddie Murphy’s character “Axel Foley” in the movie.
Crazy Frog’s Axel F Music Video
Are you ready for a twist in Crazy Frog Axel F’s success? Its music video was among the 2011 NME (New Musical Express)’s 50 Worst Music Videos, at the 47th spot. It received mixed reviews. Still, the 2009 music video has been viewed 3 billion times on YT. A big chunk of viewers, primarily kids, liked it a lot.
The video is entirely animated, featuring the Crazy Frog avatar. In this video, the chase of the Crazy Frog is depicted in a metropolitan city.
“Wh-What is going on on? Ding ding, this is the Crazy Frog”! This comes at the start of the video.
As the video begins, a high-tech van with satellite dishes appears. Someone inside is operating the van, and there is a screen that says something. It reads “WANTED: The Most Annoying Thing in the World.” This message refers to the Crazy Frog. The one who gets Crazy Frog will win a bounty of $50,000.
Later in the video, a killbot starts to chase the Crazy Frog on an armored hovering bike. On the other hand, Crazy Frog is seen roaming in the city on its imaginary bike. Crazy Frog becomes aware of the killbot. It accelerates and goes over the skyscrapers. Killbot launches a missile.
Crazy Frog plays smart and hops on the missile. This confuses the van’s guidance system. It ends up crashing in the van. Crazy Frog manages to escape, well in time. This adventurous take was the reason teens loved it.
