It’s the feel good story of our generation. From rags to riches, the underdog, the man with talent that was constantly told no, but he wouldn’t take no for an answer, so he made his own way in this world, never compromising his values, no matter what got in his way, and all without the help of Morgan Freeman giving him fatherly advice whenever it looked like he was completely beat.
We’re talking about Box Man, of course.
Not much is known about the mysterious Box Man, until now.
Through diligent research we have discovered some little known facts about his origin.
1: Arriving in America.
Box Man arrived in America on the Titanic in 1965 (*citation needed), when everything was still black and white. He had no possessions, no prospects, and no friends to call on.
2: Time in the Armed Forces.
With no money to his name, Box Man joined the NAVY, because that’s what people do. Using his unique skills, he was able to help in the relief efforts of numerous disasters, impressing all of his commanding officers and eventually even the President, who awarded Box Man the Orange Triangle Medal for Utililty.
3: Enter Showbiz.
With a bit of buzz behind him, Box Man moved to Hollywood to try his hand at acting. The pinnacle of his career was a brief stint playing Geoffrey, the Butler in The Fresh Prince Of Bel Air. Unfortunately he was replaced after only 2 episodes, due to his overshadowing of Will Smith, who was becoming jealous.
Outcast from Hollywood, Box Man was forced into street performing for money. He would paint cartoon caricatures of tourists in the Summer, and in Winter he would dance on the sidewalks of L.A. to both earn money and to keep warm. It was there that LMFAO discovered Box Man, put him in a music video, and made him into the truly international star he was always destined to be.
And there you have the origin of Box Man, the greatest story of our generation. Hopefully we are graced with his presence when LMFAO comes to NZ for their show, it would be such an honour to be in the same crowded, sweaty dance floor as him.
