Meet the Trololololo guy -- you'll *never* forget him
Still reeling from YouTube's momentary fail on the original Rickrolling link? It's fixed, we swear, but we're also pleased to report the presence of an understudy waiting in the wings: the Trololololo Guy.
Dare you not to watch -- it's the high-speed freeway chase of music videos.
But in case you can't, here's a play-by-play on the performance by singer Edward Anatolevich Hill, from Nick Douglas over at Urlesque:
Let's walk through the highlights of Hill's performance:* The first yuh-yuh-yuh. I don't believe this video would catch on were the yuh-yuh-yuh not so early.
* The oh-oh-oh-oh-ho. That's the last time Edward Hill will shape his mouth like the sound supposedly coming out.
* The arm-swings.
* Two open hands, then a sway side-to-side as if to admit the silliness.
* HIGH VOIIIIIIICE!
* Low voiiiiice.
* Pointin' and laughin'.
* Very specific hand gestures...
* A wave...
* And goodbye.
Goodbye from us as well!
