Here's how this guy's video about a pair of runners has turned into a massive meme



LAST WEEK, A seemingly innocuous tweet by American teenager Josh started an internet phenomenon.

It was just a video of his friend Daniel with a voiceover repeating the phrase “damn Daniel”.

It’s been retweeted over 300,000 times

“Back at it again with the white Vans”


“Daaammn Daniel”


So the 30-second-long video of Josh talking about Daniel’s runners has become a truly massive internet phenomenon.

There have been thousands of parodies


People have designed damn Daniel starter packs

Other famous Daniels are being referenced

Somebody even put up the supposed original Vans from the video and put them up on ebay for serious cash
