Valentin Strykalo (born Yury Kaplan, in October 2, 1988, Zaporozhie, Ukraine) is a rising star of Ukrainian alternative music scene. Yuriy’s fictional character, Valentin Strykalo, was first introduced to public in the dawn of 2008 through a series of vlog-styled humorous videos. He presented himself as a young musician, claiming to be a talented performer and a singer-songwriter from a small village in Zhytomyrskiy region, Ukraine. Each of his videos addressed one of the xUSSR pop-stars, including Timati, Vyacheslav Malezhik, duo of Potap and Nastya Kamenskih and others. Each video consisted of a small introduction; a song, written and performed in a key, vaguely resembling the addressed artists style; and the closing piece, where songwriter was asking to contact him for further details. Despite the introductory part of the videos, where Valentin appeared to be very shy, stuttering and hesitant, the songs where composed and performed skillfully and with a flavor of a professional musician.
Both funny and able style of his performance quickly became popular around the Russian-speaking segment of the Internet, turning Valentin Strykalo into a meme and spawning dozens of similar “Appeals to…” and copycats of his vlog.
Soon after Valentin was invited at the stand-up comedy show in Dnepropetrovsk, which became his first live appearance. Almost a year after, in June, 2009, he also performed at his first solo gig at the club Plan B, Moscow. Valentin Strikalo has been giving live performances around Ukraine and Russia since then, while also adding new songs to his Youtube channel and writing a blog on LJ.

    Пожалуйста, отпишитесь, если не у одной у меня паранойя. И если ещё кому-то кажется, что идея клипа "Кайен" слишком схожа с идеей "I like" The Divine Comedy. Знаю, поздно спохватилась, а всё же...

    Фанаты Стрыкало явно обделены интеллектом... И хэйтеры тоже.
