    Eduard Khil, better known to viral video watchers everywhere as The Trololo Man, is said to have suffered a stroke resulting in irreversible brain damage.

    He is currently in a coma.

    Khil, well-known in his Russian homeland long before he achieved Internet fame, is being treated at the Polenov Scientific Research Institute of Neurosurgery in St. Petersburg. His doctors say he requires emergency surgery to save his life, but note that, even if he pulls through, Khil will never be the same.
