Eduard Khil, ‘Mr. Trololo,’ Dies at 77
June 4, 2012
The Soviet crooner whose wordless tune created an Internet meme has passed away at the age of 77. Eduard Khil was hospitalized in late May after suffering a stroke and was thought to have suffered brain damage. He died Monday morning at a hospital in St. Petersburg. His gleeful, warbling rendition of the minor Russian hit “I Am So Happy to Finally Be Back Home” vaulted him to fame, though not until 34 years after his original performance on a Russian television show. The tune became a YouTube sensation in 2010 for its playful yet incomprehensible lyrics. -
