Birth Place

Daniel Lara became famous due to the video ‘Damn Daniel’ which was posted by his friend Joshua Holz. The video was an edited version of a number of videos posted by Holz on Snapchat in which Holz repeatedly uses the words ‘Damn Daniel’. The Snapchat clips were filmed by Holz at the Riverside Polytechnic School. The video went viral and it was retweeted over and over again for more than 300K times on Twitter, gained more than 400K likes and got looped on the Vine more than 2 million times. The original video clipping was of 30-second duration, showing Daniel striding around the school building in skinny chinos, a navy blue hoodie, a burgundy-colored backpack and a pair of white slip on sneakers from Vans. As Lara strode around, Holz was heard repeating the words ‘Damn Daniel’ and ‘Back at it again with the white Vans’ every now and then. The company which had made the sneakers was so impressed by the video that it presented Lara with a life-time supply of Vans shoes during a guest appearance made by Daniel and Joshua on ‘The Ellen DeGeneres Show’.

The Meteoric Rise to Stardom

A simple pair of shoes has created a phenomenon like nothing before. The popularity of the video ‘Damn Daniel’ showing Daniel Lara wearing a pair of white colored shoes made by ‘Vans’ has stormed the world like never before. Though it is very difficult to pinpoint what exactly is funny about the video, it has created a sensation all over the country. The expression ‘Damn Daniel’ is now getting attached to any person wearing a pair of white shoes. The goofy smiles given by Lara and Holz in the video have added to the comic aspect of the video.

What Makes Daniel So Special

Daniel Lara has already become the victim of an internet hoax which says that he was beaten up and robbed while wearing white Vans sneakers. It also said that somebody had stolen his white Vans and was selling them for $3,000 on eBay. He became a victim of ‘swatting’ when someone rang up the police to tell them that there had been a shooting incident at his house and his mother was involved in it. This also proved to be a hoax. He is still single and seems to enjoy his popularity. With fame comes the invasion of privacy which Daniel has been able to cope with. He does not plan to get married in the near future though he has been inundated with marriage proposals after the video became a hit. He plans to make more videos with enough funny content to make all people laugh.
