look alike

On Sept 9, 2011, in a previous post, I pointed out that in “Foar Ant,” Boxxy looks like Alyson Hannigan from shows such as “How I Met Your Mother.”

I found this video where a chick named Leah D’Emilio was talking about the same thing.  Leah happens to look like Cobie Smulders also from “How I Met Your Mother.”

I made a video commentary about it:

How I found my first Boxxy video

Hi, my name is David and before July August 2011 I had never heard of Boxxy.  Now I run this Boxxy website.

Before then, I may have seen some compilation youtube videos such as 100 Greatest Hits of YouTube in 4 Minutes which “My Name is Boxxy” is the very first thing in the video, just that I didn’t notice before.

I have been an occasional visitor to the site www.noob.us (no Boxxy there) where funny and cool videos are posted regularly with the occasional cute kitty or puppy video, and the commentators are all trolls sometimes trying to say clever things but usually just saying “first”. I often saw the comment, “Did he died?”  I was curious why so many different people using bad grammar were saying the same thing.  What is the source?  I wanted to know what that meme was; I just had never heard the word “Meme” before.

So I went to my good friend Google to search for it, the first result: knowyourmeme.com.  I read about it, learned about memes, and saw the line there that said, “Part of a series on Trolling.”

On the Trolling page, I saw this line:
Boxxy is widely considered an ‘accidental troll’, containing many features of a troll but without the purposefulness and true intent needed to make her an actual troll.

I was intrigued, thinking, Who is Boxxy and what do they mean by ‘accidental troll’?  That’s when on that page I saw the my first video featuring Boxxy:

The first thing I noticed: the still-frame, the excess eyeliner and the way she had her head tilted, and how cute she looked.  Then saw video of her talking, like all over the place.  This chick is pretty weird.  I liked how she moved her jaw to the side when she talked, and I noticed how bright her eye-whites seemed to be in relation to her eyeliner.  Plus I learned about the Boxxy situation where she had been hiding from the internet.  Intriguing.  That’s when I found Foar Everywun Frum Boxxy on her channel Boxxybabee which at the time had been recently returned to her.’

With all the people mimicking her, such as boxxyakamoldybread (I’ve never found out who this is) who she points out in Foar Everywun, and June (June’s channel), and then me being a Boxxy noob, and all the confusion of her account having been hacked, then her saying that the girl who hacked her ANewHopeee account looks very much like her (referring to herself as Svetlana).  At the time I thought she was referring to “Things are about to get intense“, also on AnewHopeee.  I did soon figure it is the same person in all these videos, despite many people believing her Svetlana rouse.

Catie reminded me of several different people.  In Foar Everywun, she reminded me of a pretty brunette actress I saw in several things about 10 years ago, one show being West WingI can’t remember who this actress is but Update Apr 29, 2016: it was probably Allison Janney that I was thinking of a couple of other people who remind me of that actress are Catherine Keener from “Being John Malkovich” and Aubrey Plaza.  Then in Foar Ant, Catie reminded me of Alyson Hannigan.  Someone else noticed the same thing.  As Svetlana, Catie was pretty well disguised.  As Catie in “Things are about to get Intense,” she looked totally different.

In addition, the fact that her new Boxxy video “Foar Svetlana” she was not looking and acting much like the 2008/2009 Boxxy.  She was trying too hard as if it wasn’t really the same person?  But really she was trying too hard to be like she was in 2009 before all the harassment ruined her life.

Then Calm Down Holden came out and she confirmed it was her in all those videos.  Some people are still skeptical.  She had yet another new look in this video as herself, not as Boxxy.  Since she is no longer any good at being like the old 2008/2009 Boxxy, I would not be too disappointed if she never plays Boxxy again, but I definitely want to see more videos of her being herself.  Some of the Boxxyness comes through when she gets excited in her 19th birthday videos.  After seeing all her videos multiple times and many of her pictures, I can now easily immediately recognize if a picture or video is of her or someone else trying to be her.  I’ll make another post later about imitators.  I made an earlier post describing why I know all the videos in the category “Catie’s original videos” are actuall of Catie.  (One observation being as I was writing the subtitles to her videos, that the things you normally don’t notice such as “uh, um, & but um yeah” are consistent in all her videos over the years.)
