Damn Daniel! Back at it again, making kids smile! The Vine stars that took the world by storm stopped by a children’s hospital to raise their spirits, while passing out some white Vans! Check out the cool pics!
The Damn Daniel guys are using their overnight fame for some good! Josh Holz, 15, and Daniel Lara 14, took the world by storm this Feb. with their viral Vine video. Now the duo are using their fame to spread some love at Loma Linda University Children’s Hospital in California.
Daniel and Josh spent some time giving back to the community when they visited sick children and passed out brand new boxes of white Vans sneakers. It is so rad that these guys have used their viral fame to do some good in the world, kudos to you guys!
The guys spent an hour on Mar. 9, 2016, celebrating Josh’s birthday by greeting patients, handing out shoes and posing for pictures. “You’re real,” said surprised patient Lili Verdugo, 15, according to local paper The Press Enterprise. “I’m a little nervous because I never met anyone I met on the Internet. It’s a little crazy. I love it when Josh’s voice cracks in the video.”
The concept for their video was simple. Josh, a sophomore at Riverside Poly High School, filmed his freshman friend Daniel everyday for a few seconds and said the now famous phrase, “Damn, Daniel!” The clips feature Daniel’s fashion choices or his, look of the day.
Daniel often rocked a pair of white Vans sneakers which prompted Josh, in his oh-so-funny tone to say, “back at it again with the white Vans!” Although viewers never get to see Josh, it is his voice that makes the video so very special.
Since the video has gone viral, the young students lives have changed dramatically and so it is nice to see them giving back to the world. Josh and Daniel appeared on The Ellen Show after their overnight success and have secret plans with Vans to start shooting a legit commercial. Daniel has even reportedly turned down modeling contracts since his video has nearly broke the internet. While Josh has decided to pursue making videos as a career.
Vans is especially happy with all the press they are receiving as a result of the hilarious video. It is great that they are partnering up with these guys and sharing shoes with patients at the local hospital near Josh and Daniel’s school.
What do you think HollywoodLifers? How cool is it that these guys were able to give back to the community? Have you figured out yet what Josh says at the end of the video? Sounds like, “stassy!” LOL.
