The Internet Really Likes This Damn Daniel Meme

Any day, another meme. This time, it is a video that was posted to Twitter, although honestly, I think it belongs more in the Vine category but I guess, as Marshall McLuhan says, “the medium is the message.” The 30-second video was posted on Twitter by user @Josholzz last Monday (Feb. 15th) and almost instantly became a hit, with over 300,000 retweets and almost 400,000 likes. To quote the video, Damn Daniel! That’s actually what all the clip is about. The phrase “damn, Daniel” and occasionally “Back at it again with the white Vans!” is voiced over (in an amusing voice) a bunch of Snapchat videos. Don’t ask me why it is funny, it just is. I think the Internet is becoming so boring now that literally anything is making us laugh.

Now the stars of the video, high schoolers, Daniel Lara (the white vans guys) and Josh Holz (the voiceover) are famous because of people’s love for this meme. They don’t seem to mind, though. Daniel (@Daniel_Laraa) posted tweeted “Josh, and I are very stoked by all this. Thank ou guys.” Just like every viral meme, this video is being overused to the point that you are probably not going to go through your day without some “Damn, Daniel” reference. It was even a Snapchat filter! People are remixing the video, figuring out how to insert the phrases into everyday lives, and coming up with every possible joke they possibly can because that is what the internet does.

You really know when a meme takes off when companies start to incorporate the phrase into their advertisement. Obviously, VANS is having a heyday with all this. Bet ya a lot of people are buying white vans now that they are cool and less douchey.

If your name happens to be Daniel, I am so sorry for the abuse you are going to get until this meme dies down. Damn Daniel, you ruined the name Daniel (and white vans).
