The Boy George/lisping thing is absolutely strange for sure but it signifies Vince's (and the WWE writers) twisted sense of humor. The box portion however can easily be explained, Taker was feuding with Big Show who was acting as the scared heel and having Paul Heyman go out on his behalf every week bearing gifts to try and smooth things over. The boxes ended up including a puppy dog, Brother Love, and finally Kanyon. I seriously doubt that Taker knew what was going to happen, when he had the Big Evil gimmick it was becoming almost commonplace for Vince and the boys backstage to try and rib Taker to make him break kayfabe on television and these surprises were trying to do just that. This was simply a burial of the many WCW talent of the time, this one just happened to be in extremely poor taste.
