RIP Eduard Khil, the “Trololo Guy”

by Joey deVilla on June 4, 2012

A few days ago, I wrote that Eduard Khil, better known to the internet as the “Trololo Guy” for a video of his 1976 lyric-free song performance that made a splash in 2010, was in critical condition after suffering a stroke. The reports are coming out that he died in a hospital in St. Petersburg.

Here’s the video that made him internet-famous:

Russia Today posted a tribute to Eduard Khil, which tells his life story.

Requiescat in pace, Mr. Khil, and thanks for all the tro-lo-los.

Oh bummer. His brief Internet fame was one of the few that I really dug.
