    • Oh, you.
      He was a singer during Soviet Russia. He produced a song, not sure for what, though, and it turned out that it contained some lyrics which weren't acceptable by the current government, or something like that, so he made the song only be mimicking the lyrics, and it sounded like "trolololol" was being sang.
      Some guy found out about his song, and how it sounded like he were singing "trolololol", and now he's famous for it..
