"As always. Please remember to stay classy!"
—Ox's catchphrase.
Brandon M. Dennis, commonly known by his internet alias, Oxhorn, is an author, game commentator, former machinima artist, and current host of his own classy livestream, Scotch & Smoke Rings. His original Oxhorn Brand movies were mostly parodying songs, movies, or World of Warcraft in general.

When he's not wearing suspenders with a certain sort of finesse, he's reading, writing, blogging, doing web design, making movies and more often than not enjoying a classy drink with an even classier cigar. Known around the world as the fallout expert, he has gained a nice reputation for his lore videos.[2]

Machinima Era Edit

Oxhorn was a prominent figure in the early WoW community starting with his first video uploaded on December 17th 2005 entitled Hark! Hear the Wails! described as "a short carol in World of Warcraft, with a devious twist."

Oxhorn later solidified his place in the WoW's history with classics such as ROFLMAO!, The Anti-Elf Anthem, and his Inventing Swear Words series. His videos are most well known for his memorable characters including Oxhorn, Staghorn, Associate Professor Evil, and Mortuus.[3] All of which are real characters he played in World of Warcraft.

WeGame Edit

Oxhorn eventually found a job with a website by the name of WeGame and was for some time doing his machinimas for a living, unfortunately WeGame closed its doors in 2011.

Later Years Edit

Hark! Hear the Wails - World of Warcraft (WoW) Machinima by Oxhorn

Hark! Hear the Wails - World of Warcraft (WoW) Machinima by Oxhorn

Oxhorn's very first video.

While he uploaded when possible, Oxhorn's video output had to decline so he could fully dedicate himself to supporting his new family. Oxhorn formally left the machinima scene on July 17th 2013 with one last epic film, Into the Tin.

A running joke on Scotch and Smoke Rings is that he would return to machinima making if someone could only drop a million dollars in his lap.

He has also commented that he has many resolutions to his various series already in his mind, but unfortunately does not have the time to make it reality.

WoWCrendor later had Ox on his interview show, Fishing with Crendor, to discuss his time in WoW and machinima career. Oxhorn discussed his fond memories of the game and why he ultimately had to quit playing.

Scotch and Smoke Rings Era Edit

Scotch & Smoke Rings Trailer

Scotch & Smoke Rings Trailer

Oxhorn's original trailer for the show.

In early 2010 Oxhorn came up with the idea for a weekly show to interact with his fans to fill the time in between his machinimas, naming the show Scotch and Smoke Rings. Around the time when Oxhorn started S&SR is also when he began growing out his famous beard. The show airs every Thursday at 7 PM Pacific Time.

Even after Oxhorn ended his machinima career he continued the show for his fans, now hosting it on his own website. He later founded a new YouTube channel to host reviews and episodes of Scotch and Smoke Rings entitled, ClassyManIAm.

He recently began making changes to improve his show including buying a new PC and moving into a new studio. He also began including improvements the interface, his Twitch chat, and introduced new perks for subscribers.

Present Edit

As of 2018 Oxhorn has changed his content output. Being a very creative person ever since his movie days Ox horn has now switched gears to the Fallout series. He is a renowned and prominent figure in the Fallout community just like

how he prominent in his WOW days. If you are ever looking to fill up on some sweet Fallout lore or a story narrated and produced of the highest quality to pass time you can visit his YouTube channel. In 2010 he quit making movies because he just started a family and wanted to support them so they can have a good financial life. While he still continued his weekly show "Scotch and smoke rings" As his channel grew from the new Fallout content he quit his job when he had reached 200k subscribers.

In the next 6 months he would witness astounding amount of success as his channel subscriber count went up to 400k. With a growing fan base and supporters Oxhorn has gained a reputation as a respectable family friendly, lovable content creator that he is because of his success he is now able to create content and provide for his family's well being. Oxhorn currently has almost 800k subscribers soon to reach 1M. Maybe one day he will make a Oxhorn brand movie from Fallout or other nostalgic series from his WoW days (we still are waiting for a sequel to his last movie!). But till then and as always remember to stay classy.

Music Edit

"For there ain't no creature in the land or sea quite as dear to me as the great kodo."
—One of Oxhorn's most iconic lines.

One of the most praised aspects of Oxhorn's films were his songs. The music was usually composed by Nathan Allen Pinard, while Oxhorn himself provided the vocals (and occasionally masterful pennywhistle playing). Many of his most popular songs are included below. His most well-known song is ROFLMAO! with over 16 million views.
