Eduard Khil, known to most Western audiences as Internet star “Mr. Trololo,” died early Monday in St. Petersburg after suffering a stroke in April. He was 77.

Khil, a baritone who was popular in the 1960s and '70s in what was then the Soviet Union, received a number of awards during his career, including the People’s Artist of Russia honor, but it wasn’t until a 1976 TV performance surfaced online in late 2009 and hit big in early 2010 that he enjoyed international fame.

Legend.

Never heard of the guy, RIP all the same.

Video reminded me think of Andy Kaufman.

Yeah, I saw that yesterday, was sorry to hear it.

One of the small positives being that he was able to at least enjoy an additional 15 minutes of fame for what he had done.
