It is considered to be an unofficial anthem of the Untergangers, due probably to the wartime rivalry between Hitler's Germany and Stalin's Soviet Union. It was first used by vzorkic in the video "Hitler hears trololo song". Since then it is used in other parodies to annoy Hitler, and even snippets of Khil, even those taken March 2010, are even used. A version of the song performed by the Gifford Children's Choir was used in a parody involving that of the Goebbels children singing the Trololo song in front of Hitler. Following Eduard Khil's death, homage parodies that feature him surged in popularity and number. The Downfall Parody Awards even had an Edward Khil Tribute Award to commemorate the parodies that were made as a tribute to Edward Khil and the Trololo in June 2012.
