When is it their turn to shine?
From Snapchat to Facebook to The Ellen DeGeneres Show, the “Damn, Daniel” meme shows no signs of slowing down anytime soon. Unfortunately, this is affecting teens the world over—they just can’t seem to cope with the catchphrase’s viral success.
Here, we take a look at their stories:
