“Damn Daniel” is a simple, but bizarre video; it’s obvious why it went viral so quickly! Josh follows Daniel around their school, Riverside High School in Riverside, CA, day after day, just saying “Damn, Daniel!” in a weird voice. Josh is raving over Daniel’s outfits, and it’s made funnier by that fact that he’s just in regular teenage boy gear: t-shirt, jeans, backpack — and white Vans sneakers. Yeah, voiceover guy really likes those Vans! (“Damn, Daniel! Back at it again with the white Vans!)
The video has inspired meme upon meme, and it doesn’t look like it’s going anywhere, anytime soon! This thing has gotten out of hand, but you know that when something goes viral, it’s going to get crazier by the day! Rappers Little, Teej and LeBlanc even made a song out of the video!
