    Mr. Trololo himself, Soviet singer Eduard Khil, died on Monday. Khil had been hospitalized since early April, when he suffered a stroke that resulted in massive brain damage. Tatyana Memedova of the Petersburg-Konsert, which helped organized Khil's concerts, said that Khil's stroke was the cause of his death. He was 77.
    Even though many will remember Khil for "Mr. Trololo," which has amassed more than 12.2 million hits on YouTube since being uploaded in November 2009, many Russians will remember Khil as being one of the top performers in the Soviet Union during the 1960s and 1970s. Even though Khil wasn't nearly as popular in the following years, it would be a video he performed in 1976 that would cement his international fame decades later.
