Very sad news today. RT is reporting that Eduard Khil, the man famous for the very popular “Trololo” song above has passed away this morning from a recent stroke. Unlike many of the various Youtube memes that have been popular over the years, I have always felt like “Mr. Trololo” was actually a talented singer and that the very catchy tune was legitimately enjoyed by the millions who have listened to it. He was always a great sport about it too, encouraging the internet world to participate in the creation of a new track even (and finding humor in all of the tributes and parodies!). His story is a very interesting one and I’d suggest checking it out if you too were one of the millions that got some happiness from this video. Rest in peace Eduard, thank you for the wonderful music!
