Crazy Frog is back in the news this week. The Dutch Advertising Standards Authority has now banned all TV ads from the company's 2004 "Jamba Sir Mix-A-Lot" ringtone and wallpaper campaign. Jamba appealed, but its complaint was rejected last month. Sadly the new Jamba TV campaigns are not affected by the ruling.
But it appears that in Germany and in the UK, watchdog groups have started investigations regarding "doubtful media practices" and "complaints over hidden subscription charges." So who knows, maybe we'll be free of the frog, eventually.
