Trolololo — which is Russian for "You will not thank me for this"

No, actually the song is titled "Indeed, I am very glad that I finally am returning home."

As you know, when I have something solid up at Pyro, it gives me the sense (illusion?) that I can be sillier over here. Sometimes the line between "silly" and "scary" is a bit blurry, though. As it is today.

First, I will destroy your minds — as mine has been destroyed — by etching a horrible tune into your cerebral cortex. That is, I will inflict share the "straight" (lip-synced) version from decades ago, by the man I like to call "The Singing Mannequin":


Okay. Well, I'm sorry, but there it was. You probably already knew it. If not... well, again, sorry.

But wait, there's more.

Here's a "live" version of part of the song.


Oh dear. Well, there's still more. Faithful reader "Al Sends" alerted me to this "unplugged" version:


At least it's intentionally funny.

If you want the whole story and backstory, an update on the singer, and various other versions, go here (— but I can't vouch for language or taste).

Aren't those videos awesome!


It is stuff like this that makes the internet such a valuable tool and a blessing to mankind. This is why Al Gore invented it.

In the broadest and most malevolent definition of the word, yes, I suppose they are "awesome."

I can't wait to go home for lunch and watch these as I need some awe in my life!

I'd love to hear this guy sing Deck the Halls. He'd go on a journey after the first "fa la la la la" and probably never come back.

Okay, between this and the video I saw yesterday of Benny Hinn going off on Joel Osteen, I think I may have landed squarely in the Twilight Zone.

If you do a stop-frame on the top or bottom vid, and look at his face... the pasty, plastic-y complexion and the waxed hair...

I think he's the alter-ego for Data.

I actually posted this on my FB but I think somebody got offended at my poor taste in humor so I took it off. I thought it was funny, but anything is funny after spending three hours at the local DMV yesterday.

DJP said...

"Offended"? Oh my.

JackW said...

Thanks for making me miss the Cold War.

I saw marionettes before my eyes with that first one. Do you think he had been drinking in the live version?

Bill Honsberger said...

I think this proves there are some things you cannot be forgiven for...

You are correct sir! I will not thank you for this!
