The hottest meme of the millennium is no more.
But the viral video, recorded on Snapchat by Daniel Lara’s friend Josh Holz, originally blew up when Holz posted it from his Twitter account. That fateful tweet is now gone forever, thanks to some joyless, racist hackers.

This is the lightning life cycle of a meme in 2016: Blow up, hear the remix, appear on Ellen, have a SWAT team sent to your house, get hacked by white supremacists, try to recover the precious meme that started it all.
Even if you did get the video back, would it matter? We can never regain our youth or innocence, Josh. Just let it go, dude. Damn.
