Soviet People’s Artist Eduard Khil, commonly known in the West as Mr. Trololo, was buried on Thursday in St. Petersburg’s Smolenskoye Cemetry.

Soviet People’s Artist Eduard Khil, commonly known in the West as Mr. Trololo, was buried on Thursday in St. Petersburg’s Smolenskoye Cemetry.

The Soviet-era crooner who won international acclaim when a 1976 clip of him performing on Soviet television became a YouTube sensation two years ago, died at the age of 77 in St. Petersburg on Monday night.

The "Trololo man" died following a stroke which left him with severe brain damage.

The burial service for the late star was held in a St. Petersburg cathedral, where thousands came to pay their final tribute to the artist.

Footage of Khil's wordless 1976 performance of his song, I Am So Happy to Finally Be Back Home, went viral on the Internet in 2010 and earned him his nickname, the "Trololo man."
