‘Damn, Daniel’ is the teen fashion meme that will save the planet

At it again.

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.

And honestly, who couldn’t use this kind of hype in their life?

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.
