|Irritating amphibian the Crazy Frog is returning with a new song - a tribute to Wham's Last Christmas.
The single is being released next month in tribute to George Michael and his 25th anniversary tour.
The video sees Santa's workshop being overtaken by evil characters who abduct him and put him behind bars.
The Crazy Frog was originally created in Sweden and became a hit ringtone.
A number one single with Axel F last year managed to beat Coldplay to the top of the charts.
The frog's infuriating "ding ding dididing", while sporting a helmet and goggles, drove millions crazy in a series of TV adverts.
The chorus is believed to have earned more than £10 million in Europe alone.
Crazy Frog was created by Daniel Malmedahl, 24, a Swedish computer components salesman. In 2003, fellow Swede Erik Wernquist, 27, drew the cartoon character and made it available for download on computers.
Jamster, the mobile content company that owns the rights to the Crazy Frog, snapped it up, launching an unlikely craze.
Last Christmas was originally a hit for Wham in 1984, when the track peaked at number two in the UK.
