    Well that's a shame. I posted this in the last thread about him but I feel it's appropriate: The 2012 rendition (though I'm 99.9% certain it's just lipsync) of the song that made him internet famous.



    Pretty goddamn good for a 78 year old.

    Well thats sad. When they did that interview after his song became popular again he seemed genuinely happy that people were enjoying it and came off as a really nice guy.

    Dunno if we watched the same video but I remember him saying everyone should get together and sing their own text to the song, in their own language.

    That's the really sad thing to me, he never got to see that dream come to fruition. :(

    I think I remember that. Yeah, I wish the initiative would have actually have been taken.

    Maybe it will now, as some kind of tribute. It would be a great gesture.

    really your day is ruined because some obscure russian singer you never heard of until "trololo" became a terrible meme, that ruined your day?

    I honestly couldn't care less about him being a meme, his voice is fucking outstanding. Besides, meme or not everyone loved his song and he got very popular which made him happy to see the world congratulating him on his voice.

    He lived a very good life and I wouldn't be shaming those who say it has ruined their day.
