"One of the hottest Christmas toys this year is the Crazy Frog - a menacing amphibian spawned from arguably the most irritating, yet popular, cellphone ring tones - won't be ringing up sales in North America until after the holidays, according to its Canadian distributor.
An 11-song CD titled Crazy Frog Presents Crazy Hits is already certified gold in Canada and, "on the pace it's selling at these days, will go platinum (100,000 units sold) by Christmas," said Donna Lidster, senior marketing director at Universal Music Canada in Toronto.
The CD contains Axel F, a reworking of the theme song to the Beverly Hills Cop movies and the first cellphone ring tone to cross onto mainstream music charts - knocking Coldplay's critically acclaimed single Speed of Sound from atop the British hits list." -
