I really should have put this up yesterday… but better late than never, right?
For those of you who don’t know Edward Khil, also known as “Mr. Trololo,” well, shame on you, slightly. He’s a famous Russian baritone singer whose popularity boomed in the west in 2010 when a video of him singing a certain song went up on the net. The lyrics of that version of the song basically sounded like “Trololololololololololo,” shortened to just “Trololo,” hence the nickname. He was popular enough that he even showed up in Family Guy. In any case, he became a living meme.
Unfortunately, yesterday, June 4, 2012, Edward Khil died at age 77, ultimately due to a stroke.
Well, Edward Khil, may you rest in peace.
