1. From sidsen
Slightly hard core question straight for the dedicated and the fan boys. The picture is a fan boy creation tribute to a particular character (apparently the third most popular one in its line, and the unofficial sad and depressed mascot of the group), which in turn (that is the particular character the fan boy tribute is a tribute to) was created as a parody/tribute nod to another frog from a really famous (but annoying) game.
Give me the famous (annoying) game.
Video (A) shows X (easy!) talking about a supposedly major turning point (Y) in his career in an “interview” on the show Z. Clips from Y are interspersed. The video has been edited heavily to avoid making the answer too obvious.
Connect the whole setup to the gentleman in the image (B).

The connection is that Waltz was parodying Trololo which is supposed to be the Russian Rickroll.
