Damn, LG! The phone company recruited the ‘Damn Daniel’ team, Daniel Lara and Josh Holz, to promote their latest phone. Let’s just say that we’re being treated to an entirely new version of the viral video! Click through to watch the epic commercial!
Daniel Lara and Josh Holtz found massive success at the beginning of 2016 when their Vine went viral, and now they’ve reached a level of fame where they’re being asked to star as spokesmen for major brands! The cell phone company LG recruited the “Damn Daniel” boys for their commercial shilling the LG V20 phone, which boasts an even better camera and audio capabilities than their previous models.
That means that people like Daniel and Josh can churn out viral videos with ease, with the help of their handy new phones. To prove that point, the entire commercial was filmed with an LG V20 phone! The funny spot recreated the “Damn Daniel” meme by showing clips of the original video captioned “damn daniel remastered”. It then cuts to Josh holding the cell phone, recording Daniel walking around (in his Vans, of course), and looking on with awe — because his phone is capturing the moment so amazingly.
Enter a ’90s-style R&B group that remixes the video, turning “Damn Daniel” into a smooth song. It’s as weird as you’d think! Rather than being captured in sneaky little clips by his best friend, Daniel’s now walking through his high school campus in slow motion, wind blowing through his perfect hair, as the group sings: “Damn Daniel back at it again with the white Vans/so smooth he ain’t even tryin’/all the ladies say he’s so fly/this boy deserves to be recorded.” So crazy!
