Eduard Khil, or "Mr. Trololo" as he was known to millions on the internet, died today of complications following a stroke. He was 77.
Khil enjoyed popularity as a singer in Soviet Russia during the '60s and '70s before stepping down from the public stage in the early '90s. Then, in 2010, Khil achieved the dubious honor of Internet fame after a video of a 1976 televised performance went viral.
Khin replaced the lyrics of the song, titled "I Am Glad, 'Cause I'm Finally Returning Back Home," with alternating "lololols" and "lalalalas" because he was afraid the Soviet government would censor the original lyrics. Which proves that in Soviet Russia, memes make you.
Blake Boston, a.k.a. the face behind the ubiquitous Scumbag Steve meme, just released a music video. He raps! He dances! He's inconsiderate and impolite! Plus, it looks like he's planning to release more tracks on his Scumbag Thursdays website-cum-label. Hey, if your face is an international symbol for douchebaggery, you might as well try to start a rap career out of it.
