Forget ‘Damn, Daniel!’ Soon, you’ll be saying ‘Damn, Ellen!’ as Ellen DeGeneres brought the boys behind the viral video, Daniel Lara and Joshua Holz, onto her show just days after it took the Internet by storm, and they filmed a new version! Watch it here.
Daniel Lara has become an overnight celebrity thanks to his white Vans and the 30-second “Damn Daniel” video that went viral on Feb. 21. In fact, he’s already so famous, Ellen DeGeneres invited him onto her show! When he and his buddy Joshua Holz — the guy behind the camera that made Daniel a star — paid a visit to the Ellen Degeneres Show on Feb. 24, they recreated the video, this time yelling, “Damn, Ellen!”
In a new teaser for the Feb. 24 episode of The Ellen DeGeneres Show, we see Daniel and Ellen with their arms wrapped around each other, as Josh yells, “Damn, Daniel!” followed by, “Damn, Ellen!” Then, they show off their matching white Vans! Watch it above.
And if you haven’t seen the original vid yet, where have you been? But really, even people who aren’t on Twitter can’t stop repeating “Damn Daniel”…it’s just so catchy! That video shows Daniel walking around looking totally cool, and every time he changes outfits, in comes Josh saying the now-famous catchphrase. To add to the random hilarity, Josh points out Daniel’s fly shoes: “Back at it again with the white Vans!”
Although Josh first shared the video on Feb. 15, the Twitterverse caught wind of the hilarious clip a week later. Before Daniel could say “Damn Daniel” again, he was the subject of countless memes — and even receiving marriage proposals! How crazy is that?! There has also been a couple of songs made using the “Damn Daniel” phrase…clearly it’s addictive!
And soon enough, we’ll likely be saying “Damn, Ellen!”
