Has it really been more than 3 years ever since I joined tumblr? Wow. If someone was curious, I got into the college I wanted!

You know what’s kind of the best thing about that?
The “Trololo” song is actually a pretty old Russian song. The lyrics of that song were considered having too much revolutionary potential and were therefore banned in Russia at the time Khil did this perfomance.
So the song was pretty much illegal, and singing it on TV could have meant prison or worse for him.
But he decided to sing it anyway, changing the lyrics to this “lololo”-gibberish. Since pretty much everyone in Russia knew that song at the time, this way he still spread the message, but slipped it right past the radar of the government.
It’s a nice thought that most of the world finds his raised middle fingers to the Russian government just as fun as he did, even though for other reasons. The fact that it became a meme on the internet makes his protest against censorship immortal, so the Russian government won’t be able to escape his raised middle fingers from the grave for a long time.
Thank you, Eduard Khil. We hardly knew you, but I hope you’re going to have a good time wherever you are now. :3
