Joshua Holz had no intention of becoming Internet superstars when he filmed his buddy Daniel Lara and his White vans for a Snapchat vid called “Damn Daniel.” But with more than 45 million views now racked up, that’s totally what happened! So when Ellen DeGeneres brought the boys onto her show on Feb. 24, the overnight celebs were somewhat shy — but totally cute! Keep reading to see our fave moments!
1. The first time Joshua said “Damn Daniel” on the show
There was no way Joshua was going to be leaving Ellen without saying his now-famous phrase at least once! When he was explaining the story behind the video, he said “Damn Daniel” the exact same way that he does in the video, and it had everyone cracking up — but the cutest reaction came from Daniel, who grinned from ear to ear!

2. When he talked about his marriage proposals
While Daniel seemed sheepish during the whole interview, Ellen mentioned the marriage proposals he was getting — and boy, did he blush! He said he’s in no rush to get married (slow down, ladies, he’s only 14), but followed that up with an adorably gushing comment: “The girls are just a huge bonus out of all of this.”
3. When Daniel admitted that he went to the mall to see if people would recognize him
Ellen asked Daniel about the moment he realized the video was viral, and his story was priceless. He was obviously still getting used to the idea of being famous, but when he went shopping, he couldn’t help wondering if people would know who he is — how cute!
4. Josh’s face when was given a “Damn Daniel” surfboard
Clearly Josh didn’t know how being one of Ellen’s guests works, because he had no idea he was getting some sort of gift from her. So when she brought out a sweet surfboard, his jaw was almost on the floor! Plus, Ellen gave Daniel a lifetime supply of Vans, and he was just as thrilled!
5. When he recreated “Damn Daniel” with Ellen
Let’s be honest — were we expecting Daniel and Josh to go on Ellen and not recreate this viral vid? Of course we were! The boys clearly had a great time doing it, too, which is why it was definitely one of the cutest moments with Ellen. Plus, it turned out to be absolutely hilarious!
