    Nice voice, sorry about him dying, respect for those who enjoyed his music, but that was the creepiest video I have ever seen. Creepier for the fact that it was not trying to be creepy. This is right in the uncanny valley.

    Roger that. After I watched the video, I was certain that the whole thing was a joke... until reading the links.
    The guy just reminds me too much of the grinning idiot in the Cialis commercials.

    Borek introduced us in chat to mr trololo. He made people happy and he made people laugh. I wouldn't mind having that on my headstone.

    I think it was micro, our resident internet meme guru, who introduced me to Mr. Trolololo.
