Agreed, Damn Daniel! Internet phenomenons Daniel Lara and Josh Holz, the original creators of the catchy-phrase "Damn Daniel," are indeed back at it. Last month, the duo rose to fame after their "Damn Daniel" video went viral on Twitter bringing in over 350K retweets.
Their video received enough attention that Ellen DeGeneres invited the teens to appear on her show. Holz got a personalized "Damn Daniel" surfboard from Ellen. And Lara was gifted a lifetime supply of Vans shoes.
Last week, however, Lara decided to give back and donate all of his Vans to Loma Linda University Children's Hospital. "This is our community and we want to help out in any way we can," Holz told Los Angeles Daily News. Holz celebrated his birthday not in treating himself to gifts, but treating others with kindness. They made their way to the hospital ready to spread compassion, with a memorable appearance in a gigantic Vans shoe.
The hospital expressed their gratitude for the teens on Twitter. "Thank YOU for giving so much," they wrote. "One of our patients said, "best day ever!" Again, thank you!"
