Some people have been shocked and appalled to discover that the Crazy Frog - yes, you remember him - was standing around with his willy out the whole time.
For many people growing up at the turn of the millennium, the Crazy Frog became completely inescapable, whether it was through early internet videos, the infuriating ringtone, or his brief venture into the music charts with an utterly baffling and horrendous take on the 'Axel F' theme from Beverly Hills Cop.
However, did you notice that he was standing around with his tackle hanging out? Because some people didn't and it's ruining their lives all these years later in 2021.
One disgusted Twitter user wrote: "I JUST REALIZED CRAZY FROG JUST HAS HIS PENIS HANGIN OUT"
Another person said: "Something from my past that I'd like to bring up: What was with the penis here? Frogs don't even have penises. explain yourself Crazy Frog the people need answers."
This person is right, frogs do not have penises. They also don't wear motorcycling helmets and leather jackets, or babble incoherently over the theme tunes of 80s cop movies, but there we go.
However, some people have backed the Crazy Frog letting it all hang out.
One such supporter said: "I will not stand for Crazy Frog penis erasure."
Sure, whatever floats your boat.
Why did they draw Crazy Frog with a penis?

So, if you're interested in a bit of background on the Crazy Frog, you might be interested to learn that he was originally created by Swedish animator Erik Wernquist.
The idea was that he would accompany a ridiculous - and eventually ubiquitous - comedy impression of a motorcycle.
However, it soon became so much more than that.
Despite originally being called 'The Annoying Thing' by the creator, the animation was eventually picked up by ringtone company Jamba, who renamed it Crazy Frog.
Quickly, it took off. In fact, if you remember the years 2003 to 2005, if was hard to go a day without hearing the Crazy Frog ding-ding-dinging away in some capacity.
Eventually, someone pointed out that his wanger was hanging out, and the whole thing started to get a bit controversial.
There were complaints about the frog's visible - and, as we've discussed, inaccurate - genitalia. The videos for his music videos were censored on some commercial music channels.

Why'd they even give crazy frog a penis, do frogs even have external penises? Peni? Google what's the plural of cock?

In the end, the UK's Advertising Standards Agency ruled in favour of the Crazy Frog's junk, but it was edited out by Jamba later on, just to get rid of the debate altogether.
Still, the inexplicable popularity remains.
His 'Axel F' music video has a whopping 2.4 billion views on YouTube, with many people commenting recently to say that they're still watching it.
Perhaps it is being used as a form of torture in some darkened off-grid rooms around the world.
That's the only reason that makes sense for why people are still putting this crap into their ears.
