Here’s something for you to ponder: Why this video of a kid named Josh breathlessly complimenting his friend Daniel’s clothes day after day is so damn funny. Go ahead—watch it a few dozen times. You’ll want to.

You’re not alone, either. Teens just can’t get enough of Daniel.
Could it be that in an era defined by casual Internet cruelty, we were waiting all along for this pure expression of positivity and love? Yeah, duh. And our minds are completely blown. Rejoice, you cynics.
Is your name Daniel because damn

Damn, Daniel—you’re doing everything right.
Update 2:48pm CT, Feb. 25: Ellen DeGeneres had Josh and Daniel on her show, gifting them a surfboard and a lifetime supply of Vans, respectively. This is their world now—we just live in it.
