Boxman is portrayed by either Anthony Padilla or Ian Hecox, depending on which of the two is playing another character. He was portrayed by Ian as a normal human. He is a skinny man, who has the body of an old box.


Boxman is a regular man, but has the torso and head of made of a box. Eyes and a smile are drawn on the box with a black marker, and other pieces of cardboard are tapes on to change his facial expressions when needed.

He wears a light brown short-sleeved shirt and blue jeans.


The origin of Boxman started when he was relaxing at home, "eating some Raisin Bran". Then, he noticed how pale he was and decided it was time to get a tan, so he grabbed his scissors (for reasons unknown) and ran downstairs. He forgot his house was a story tall, and missed the first step and fell. getting impaled by the scissors in the process. He ran outside to get help, blindly stumbled into the street, and he was run over by some cars (which were driven by Anthony Padilla and Ian Hecox) multiple times, mutilating his body to a near-fatal level.


After the incident, Boxman found himself in a strange location, and an apparently uneducated "dirty bum" who lives on Windex (played by Anthony Padilla) had an explanation for why. He found Boxman nearly dead in the middle of the road, and found that it was necessary to perform reconstructive surgery on his torso and head. He had to use a cardboard box as his (Boxman's) new body because he had no human parts. The news was so overwhelming to Boxman that he fled from the scene.

Boxman has been ignored and rejected since the accident due to the fact that every store has banned boxes. He is also rejected by other people.

He hates Christmas, box cutters, and lighters but often gets them as presents.

Boxman really wants to meet a girl who likes him for himself, but cannot get any girlfriends, except one. Boxman never noticed that his only girlfriend was a guy (played by Anthony Padilla), until the end of the video where he tackled his "girlfriend" and took his wig off at the beach.

Boxman has a family, and a brother (played by Anthony, voiced by Ian) who hates him and wants to kill him, as revealed at the end of the music video, Boxman's Christmas, where the brother gets ready to set Boxman on fire with a lighter.

Boxman ran for president in 2008, but he lost the election to Barack Obama. Boxman wasn't even a politician, and he was not a choice to vote for.
