    The Boxxy Phenomenon


    This girl who calls herself "Boxxy" is a bona fide internet phenomenon.
    Her video has only been up on YouTube for four months, and already, she has 2,800,000 views!

    Watch this:
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Yavx9yxTrsw

    There are references to her all over the internet. There are blog entry after blog entry of people who love her madly, and of people who hate her with a passion. What is it about this girl that inspires such intense emotion in people? Personally, I think she's adorable; nonsensical and bizarre, but still adorable.
    What's your impression?

    Well, I think that she's annoying and pretentious... and I hate her hair... I hate when people get styles where they have to tilt their heads a certain way constantly to keep it in place. But, she's pretty. That's all I can really say for her, and I'm not sure why her youtube even matters to people.
    So patience... is nothing...

    She's pretty fine but her voice is super annoying. I don't think I could stand to be around her for more than 5 minutes.
    Keep your headphones on.

    Thanks for the responses, but that's not really what I'm looking for. I'm seeking an explanation of what it is about her that's inspired such intense devotion in some, and such burning hatred in others. I mean, this girl is apparently a big deal. If you google "Boxxy," you get 299,000 hits! That's high-profile! Just to give you a point of comparison, googling "PM Dawn" gets 258,000 hits.

    I must say, the thing that drew me in was the fact that she wears black against a black backdrop. It's almost like she is a disembodied head, like in a puppet show. Also, the extreme close-up sort of reminds me of Big Brother, except she's far less malevolent, and much perkier.

    well, i'm assuming she probably got picked up by 4chan. that's how everything gets popular. and usually that's all it takes, whether the content is captivating or relevant is almost irrelevant. it just has to be quirky enough to get a couple peoples attention.

    but, this video does have a nearly perfect storm thing happening...cute, chick, saying dumb stuff or saying it like she's on meth,

    She's like a kid.

    And, people are stupid.

    That should just about answer everything.

    Well, I can see why those qualities could get someone to pass on the video, like I did to this forum, but the question remains... why do people love her/hate her so much? "Chocolate Rain,"

    also picked up by 4chan, generated millions upon millions of views, too, but people would generally watch it and say, "I liked it" or "I didn't like it". Boxxy, however, created devotees who actually went so far as to make gallerys of Boxxy vidcaps and verbal declarations of love, and she also created people who hated her (or maybe hated her fans) enough to cyber-attack her, and stalked her until she chose to curtail her internet activities.

    She's sort of extreme herself, in a way that is more sensational for today, and it draws extreme attention. Her antics and appearance are very now and speak to today's people, she's a cute girl, she's "emo" in appearance (and I barely grasp what that means), and she won't stop muppeting about-- all of which scream, "look at me!", which I'm sure is all very gratifying to her young ego and all very time-consuming to the mindlessly underentertained and unstimulated looking for a new fixation or battle via internet to provide some meaning to their sad, pointless lives ... (sigh) It's a formula for success, or "success", or just suc.

    Supposition on my part, I'd be willing to be she's had a few though to go with the death threats. most of them probably just want a quickie though. You could ask and see what the reply is...

    there we go, just right. keep walking...
