Damn, Daniel! Back at it again with a new fad… but this time, it’s permanent.

In today’s viral world, the classic fifteen minutes of fame feels like it’s been cut down to fifteen seconds, but every once in a while, some internet phenomenon will make it past its original time in the limelight to become something culturally important.

It may have peaked weeks ago, but the “Damn, Daniel!” vine that started it all–countless parodies, a new catchphrase, and the surging popularity of vans–is still bound to be with us for some time.

This is truer than most for a few people who took their love for “Damn, Daniel!” to the next level… we can’t believe they did this!

They turned a fleeting fad into something permanent!

Daniel Lara and Josh Holz never could have expected just how popular Josh’s video of Daniel showing off his daily outfits and white Vans would go after he posted it online back in February.

In no time, they were the world’s newest viral sensation, and even made a memorable appearance on Ellen.

But now, people are starting to get tattoos that reference the fad. You know. Like, permanent tattoos. On their skin.
