Rest In Peace, Mr. Trololo

June 4, 2012

 

We’d like to acknowledge the death of Mr. Eduard Khil, also known as Mr. Trololo.

Mr. Khil died last night at the age of 77 after suffering a stroke in late May. He was a Russian singer revered for his catchy and ever inspiring performance of the song “I Am Glad, ‘Cause I’m Finally Returning Back Home” (1976) about a cowboy riding across the prairie. The song is performed in a censored version, as the lyrics were not in the taste of Soviet Russia during the time. But Mr. Khil performs the song with no less happiness or high spirit, providing us with many happy hours of trololo and yeyeye.

The trololo-song became an internet sensation during 2010, and has since been the subject of many parodies and internet memes, as well as Mr. Khil’s face now graces both t-shirts, mugs and other merchandise.

Rest in peace, Mr. Trololo. We hope that you are glad, ’cause you are finally returning back home.
