OK, OK, We’ll stop.

It’s been a long April Fool’s Day, and you’ve probably had enough of our pranks by this point. So let’s get things back to normal with this video of a kitteh doing what kittehs do best: Taking up space.



  1. sfrench says:

    Yes! 😀

  2. adalheidis says:

    Today wins.

  3. Hah what a totally creepy guy. I love both him and the sink cat.

  4. Ha! You guys are the best.

  5. Paunchie says:


    FREAK! Good Lord! Is he made of wax? He looks so flippin’ strange! And that weird smile! OMYGAHD.

    Cute sink cat though, takin’ up space.


  7. Transpogue says:

    See, if you would have used the vid of Wil Wheaton doing this song, now THAT would have been something…

    … but I suppose this will do.

    /everyone’s a critic

  8. marthava says:

    I’m a ventriloquist, and that was my voice. I was throwing it. That’s why his lips weren’t moving…because HE wasn’t really singing!

  9. Not That Mike The Other Mike says:

    @ Transpogue: I just saw that video of Wil Wheaton singing the Trololo song today! 😀 It was hilarious, but I’d already completed my little project, so there it is. (To see what Transpogue is talking about, click here)

  10. pugletsrule says:

    NO!!! Please don’t EVER stop!! Nomtom – Meg – Prongs – Teho….what would we do without you?

    My god that was funny!

  11. i… feel… INSANE now! lollllllllllll thanks! 😀

  12. I don’t know. I think that cat’s good enough for Lawrence Welk.

  13. FishDead says:

  14. MamaLana says:

    Isn’t it wonderful that there’s no more Lawrence Welk? (Sorry, Grandma.) Now that talking kitty was really good!

  15. That is by far the scariest thing I’ve seen in forever. I kept expecting his face to melt or something.

  18. magzdilla says:


  19. Hahaahhahahhaa – I can’t even begin to imagine how you found such a video. He looks like frankenstein pre-frankening.

  20. Trololo FTW!

  21. Lazarus says:

    I’m in New Zealand, so it’s already the second when any of this April Fools stuff goes up.

  22. Between this and Woot! I’ve had the best April Fools Day ever! In my whole life!

  23. That is one SCARY dude!

  24. ROFL WTF was that. XD Lip synchin FTW I guess.

    *applauds* great April Fools, CO! ❤

  25. 260Oakley says:

    Why is the cat in the sink? Because she’s doing a Farah Faucet tribute.

  26. I would like to say proudly that I know all of the “Trolololo” er.. “lyrics” and he is indeed my ring tone. Yeyeyeyeyeyeye.. hohohoho.

    For anyone who doesn’t know what this magical man is, his name is Edward Hil (spelled about 20 different ways), and he’s a Russian singer from the 70s who specialized in a singing style that was all vocalizing. When Stephen Colbert used this video on his show, he became an instant internet meme.

    And for good reason. Look how handsome he is.

  27. O NO (he/she/or it) DI'UNT!!!!! says:

    @ CJ…er…um…..

    don’tcha mean to say, “how INTELLIGENT and
    PHILOSOPHICALLY PROFOUND”, he is???????? 😉 😉

  28. O NO (he/she/or it) DI'UNT!!!!! says:

    And @ our hero,(ine?) 260O:

    I just don’t even have the STRENGTH this time, to object.
    And actually, this one is SO SWEET that I gotta be happy for yer skillzzz

    MWAH & stuff.

  29. auntmissjenni says:

    Bleach! Someone gimme some bleach–eye bleach, ear bleach, whutevs! That which was seen cannot be unseen. NTMTOM, as always, you reign supreme. You get the Best (or Worst??) Fool of the Day Award. (Now, do I reeeally want to click on that Wil Wheaton link?? Meh, I’m already scarred for life, so, wth!)

  30. Hey, I like the guy in the video. He looks happy!

  31. victoreia says:


    (…And, that, after noticing Rick Astley up at the top of the page!)

  32. Wow. I didn’t know my ex-father-in-law had a singing career.

  33. why is that guy so friggin’ creepy!?

  34. I never comment, but I love you guys today. For what it’s worth…


  35. Cute Overload…you win the internet today.

  36. WOO! Trololo-Roll! You guys are so awesome! This is the best post ever! I LOVE Edward Hill! =D

  37. Trisha – it’s because of the affectations. Some are stage acting, some are cultural and some are generational. It looks weird to us because we don’t share any of the same contexts. Believe me, 30 years from now kids will be playing Beyonce’s “Single Ladies” video and adding comments like “What. The. ****?!” “Why is she so creepy?”

  38. OMG You DIDN”T The Rusian Rick Roll!!!!!!!!!! OMG I LOVE you guys so much…. what a perfect end to the pranks.

    Best day on Cuteoverload ever!

  39. dm21865 says:

    I thought the hillbilly chick talking to the cat was more creepy than the singing guy. If she had said, “cat, you got a purdy mouth” I think David Lynch may have bestowed an award upon CO. Anyway, nice Deliverance.

  40. He sorta looks like a grown-up Howdy Doody puppet

  41. Jeebus! That guy is creepy as all !


  42. I personally believe this video has the original sound track to that performance, and the Trololo singing is actually added on afterwards:

    Say what you will, this is what I choose to believe.

  43. holy crap! lol. that was a dirty, rotten trick! why i oughtta! why i eyes ya!!!

  44. LOL, mie! That’s even funnier than the original!

  45. Not That Mike The Other Mike says:

    @ mie: LOL! Maybe that version is the one without auto-tune. 😀

  46. “why i eyes ya!!!”

    All the livelong day!

  47. Queen of Dork says:

    That was cool. 🙂

  48. @ Lazarus: It’s as though April Fools has… risen from the dead….

  49. Queen of Dork says:

    The guy singing on the video looks a bit risen from the dead as well.

  50. O NO: Exactly!!! He’s a prophet. How can anyone dislike someone as happy as him???

  51. Christoph Waltz did a really funny version of this, too, on Jimmy Kimmel:

  52. Madame X says:

    Marmar, you took the words right out of my mou.. err… my fingertips! He DOES look like a taller, more wooden version of Howdy Doody!!!

    And thanks, CO, for making this April Fools one for the ages!

  53. Ha ha, you didn’t trick me! The thumbnail on my RSS reader showed the Trololo man right off the bat! 😛

    [But did you watch it ANYWAY?! – Ed.]

  54. @ Mie – thanks for the laugh, THAT was hilarious!
    ya, ya, ya, ya…

  55. Brandi7920 says:

    this would be fitting for halloween… >.<

  56. yayyayayay..oohhhh, yahhhh, yayayyaa, yyeyyeyeyeye, hoohhooooo, laddaaallladdd, ddummmdduummm……

    This guy rocks!

  57. Leilani says:

    Ackshully, I think he looks more like one of the Flowerpot Men than Howdy Doody.

  58. This is the SECOND TIME someone has trolololled me today. Well played.

  59. CathyDee says:

    Mommy, I’m frightened . . . . .

  60. Lindsay says:

    Is this from the 50’s? In what time period was this man considered to be normal? Hm.

  61. 😆 AWW 😆 Buddy the kitty just wants to sleep in the sink, mommy 😆

  62. The Russian “Trololo” singer is a nice old chap named Eduard Khil who seems rather bemused by his new Internet fame:

  63. chanpon says:

    Second time I’ve seen that clip and it’s still as creepy as ever. *cries*

  64. Does anyone think that the guy looks vulcan? I have no clue why, but for some reason every time I see him I think “Spock.”

  65. Flavia A. says:

    Best april fools here ever! Rick rolled hiding cuteness \o/

  66. @Lindsay: No, it’s from 1976. Just goes to show you how out-of-date Soviet pop culture was back in the day.

  67. leendadll says:

    THANK YOU…. I finally understand the Kimmel skit that Another Jenn posted!! It made NO sense to me when it aired!

  68. Julia (the one in BC) says:

    NOMTOM, you is my Cute OverLORD!

    *grovels sincerely*

  69. AuntieMame says:

    Murf, I didn’t think Spock, but he definitely looks like Sarek!

  70. Shellshocked says:

    Totally freaky. But perfect for April Fools Day. Or Halloween…

    According to wikipedia, Eduard Khil was a serious singer in Russia and graduated from the Leningrad Conservatory. Well. OK then.

  71. Loved the N.O. header, loved the reverse rickrolling, loved the lesson in ‘shopping, loved the Trololoing, loved the circle of life (how do you make those musical notes in the comments?)…. Loved all the lovely shenanigans. 🙂

  72. Hahahah! Brilliant. Thanks for a giggly April Fool´s Day. 🙂

  73. bookmonstercats says:

    Doesn’t the Trololo Song count as Scat Singing then…………………………..?

    *wanders off, puzzled*

  74. Where did the new post go? There were little piggies, I commented, and then they were gone. Oh noes – I keeled the post.

    [What, this post? :?- Ed.]

  75. Okay. I literally just peed my pants a little laughing at the remix vid. THAT is the funniest thing on the internet I have seen in a LONG time!!!

  76. Great. Now it will take days to get that song out of my brain.
    Oh ho ho ho ho…GAH!!!

  77. doomchild says:

    You got me 🙂

  78. metsakins says:

    okay, now ya got me. I really thought you were done yesterday and didn’t even look at this until today. That video had been introduced to me by a fellow CuteTalker and all I have to say is


    u guyz r teh best!

  79. Weirdedout says:

    OMG, that weird-ass guy was CREEPY! That has to also be one of the gayest clips I’ve EVER seen! My g-ma used to love Lawrence Welk too (poor, misguided g-ma) 🙂

  80. Gloria Blackwell says:

    Enjoyed the cat…scary singing guy – not so much.

  81. Thanks a lot! I finally got that trololo thing out of my head from the last time and now its back!

  82. Andi from NC says:

    What a great day – you guys really put the LOAD in Cute Overload!!!!

  83. I heard the song before they cut to the video, and I was like no… they aren’t…. OH yes they are!!! LOL!!! This video is hilarious.

  84. Jeanette says:

    Like being rick-rolled, but a lot creepier!

  85. LeAnn (not LeAnna) says:

    I like the pink tile. Someone needs to notify Pam at RetroRenovations.com, she would approve.

  86. I think he looks like Dennis Kucinich.

  87. Paunchie says:

    yuh yi yi yi ooh ooh oooooh!

  88. OMG! That song is AWFUL! I can’t believe ANYONE would ever LIKE THAT!

  89. Man, they really need to redecorate that bathroom so it doesn’t clash with the cat so much.

  90. So….what is that set from? What old show is it from?????

  91. Glad I was not the only one skeeered by this!! I’m gonna have nightmares.
    I canna laugh no more. Losing my mind.
    Fool’s Overload.
