It seems that ‘Damn Daniel’ has completely taken the world by storm, so much so that even some of Hollywood’s biggest stars are now getting in on the action — including Charlie Puth. In a new Snapchat video, the singer shows off his best impression and it is SO spot-on it’s almost scary. See it here!
It’s official: “Damn Daniel” is everywhere these days! In addition to capturing the attention of millions of fans worldwide, the viral vine has now officially caught the eye of some of Hollywood’s biggest stars — Charlie Puth included! Like so many out there, Charlie couldn’t get enough of Daniel Lara‘s hilarious meme and even took to Snapchat on Feb. 25 to show off his best “Damn, Daniel!” voice. The best part? It’s actually pretty damn good! Watch it here!
Charlie’s impression is so good, it’s almost scary. In the video, the “See You Again” singer actually has us doing a double-take as he recites lines from the viral video, including the famous “Back at it again with the white vans!” His voice is so spot on, it’s hard to believe that the video’s actual creator Joshua Holz isn’t right there next to him saying the lines. Even Charlie himself can’t help but laugh at how amazing his impression is. “Is that weird? I can do the voice perfectly!” he exclaims in the video. “It’s so weird!”
As you surely know the video by now — and if you don’t, you can watch the original here — the 30-second vid shows Daniel walking around, looking super cool, while his buddy Josh proceeds to say “Damn Daniel” every time he changes to a different outfit. He also points out Daniel’s shoes, exclaiming, “Back at it again with the white Vans!” It may not sound like much, but trust us, it’s hilarious!
While this may just be our favorite imitation of “Damn Daniel” yet, there have been some pretty awesome remakes of the vid since it went viral on Feb. 21. From Harry Potter (a.k.a. Daniel Radcliffe) to the Los Angeles Lakers, and the countless memes in between, this has certainly turned into one crazy Internet sensation. So much so in fact, that Daniel and Josh were recently invited onto The Ellen DeGeneres Show where host Ellen DeGeneres had Josh repeat his famous catchphrase, even making a personalized version for her Vine account! The TV host then treated Josh to his own personalized “Damn, Daniel” surf board, while Daniel was given a lifetime supply of white vans. Back at it in the white vans for life!
When Ellen and Daniel weren’t comparing kicks, the teen viral star and his bud were opening up about their newfound fame.“I went to the mall, I wanted to shop and kind of wanted to see if people would recognize me a little,” Daniel explained. “And I ended up taking maybe 15, 10 photos with people. And the next day I went to a swim meet and I took 30 or 40 photos there. That’s when I realized….this is crazy.” You got that right!
