When the Trololo thing hit, I was working with a woman just a bit older than me who grew up in the Soviet Union.
Anyway, she remembered that guy, and his work, and assured us that his work was representative of the kind of thing that was on Soviet TV at the time.
Some of our coworkers felt superior. I, on the other hand, remembered Hee Haw, The Mike Douglas Show, and . . . (ugh) Shields and Yarnell. We are not as different as we sometimes like to think.
