Viral Video (Re)Creates Another Celebrity Out of Left Field!

Eduard Khil' is everywhere these days.

By now, you've either seen his jaw-dropping, mind-bending performance from decades past of the song "I Am So Happy to Finally Be Back Home" (which has become known online as "The Trololo Song" or simply "Trololo"), or you've been exposed to any of the myriad remixes and parodies of it.

If you've been living in a cave for the past few weeks and have no idea what I'm talking about, go back and read my post from March 5th, A "WTF?" Explained, to see the original clip and get the story behind it.

The clip quickly entered the hallowed realm of the viral video, and all these years later, Khil' himself has been tracked down...and he has a challenge for us all!

I don't know what I find cooler - that Khil' has been found, that he is clearly reveling in his renaissance, or that he still has the same bad brown suit and haircut!

What is undoubtedly awesome is the idea of writing "real" lyrics to the song and having Mr. Khil' himself sing it anew!

More details to come as they become available regarding dates and places for submissions. Now then, I have lyrics to write...
