Damn, Ellen! Daniel Lara and Joshua Holz, the viral video masterminds behind ‘Damn Daniel,’ paid a visit to ‘The Ellen DeGeneres show’ on Feb. 25. Oh, you know she wasn’t going to let them leave without saying the Internet’s most famous words. Click to watch her Vine!
“Damn Daniel” is so four days ago. The Internet is all going to be about the next viral craze: “Damn, Ellen.” Ellen DeGeneres, 58, was back at it again with the White vans and she’s about to blow up, thanks to some help from Daniel Lara and Joshua Holz.
Technically, Ellen wasn’t wearing Vans when Daniel and Josh stopped by her set for the Feb. 24 episode of The Ellen DeGeneres Show. Still, she was able to join all those other famous celebs getting in on the “Damn Daniel” fun. Ellen had Josh repeat his famous catchphrase, even making a personalized version for her Vine account!

When Ellen and Daniel weren’t comparing kicks, the teen viral star and his bud were opening up about their newfound fame. “It was just like…it was just out of nowhere,” Josh said. Josh said that one day, he posted a quick video to his Snapchat story and the rest is viral video history.
Now, everyone is saying those two famous words. Along with all the memes, Harry Potter (aka Daniel Radcliffe, 26) got the “Damn Daniel” treatment. Plus, the Los Angeles Lakers made their own “Damn Daniel” video, despite none of them wearing any white Vans sneakers.
Not everyone is a fan of “Damn Daniel” – hard to believe, right? One of Josh’s haters pulled a very cruel – and very illegal – joke on him on Feb. 23 when the unknown prankster told the police that Josh shot his mother with an AK-47. Josh became a victim of “swatting,” after police swarmed his home and found that everyone in his family was okay.
Who would do such a thing? After all, Josh is a funny guy, as his classmates EXCLUSIVELY told HollywoodLife.com that Josh was just being himself when he made viral video history. They also said that Daniel is a “pretty athletic guy,” and judging by his shirtless pictures, we can see that!
Are you going to start saying “Damn Ellen” now, HollywoodLifers?
