17 Of The Funniest Damn Daniel Memes You Need To See Right Now

Damn, Daniel.

If you’ve been on the Internet at any point over the last few days, you’re bound to have heard those words, screeched out in the unmistakable voice-cracking timbre of a nascent adolescent boy as he roasts his friend (who, presumably, is named Daniel), for his timeless, if predictable, choice in footwear. If you haven’t seen the original video, you can check it out here:

Damn, Daniel, indeed. Teen boys are so funny! And so mean! This is why I was T E R R I F I E D of them when I was in high school–one time, my crush asked me what I’d get as a tattoo if I were ever to get one and I panicked and said “a potato”–but that is a story for another day. 

In any case, the video was only posted a few days ago, but since then, it’s flourished into quite the meme, with people posting “Damn Daniel” imitation videos, starter packs, and even the odd tribute song. It’s basically a mix of Alex from Target (remember him?) and “what are those?” in that it’s objectively silly and meaningless, but still oddly intoxicating. Even after you close out of the video, the words “Damn, Daniel. Daaaaaamnnn,” seem to reverberate on a loop in your head–like Vine, but IRL–making its meme-ification feel wholly inevitable. Which, as you are about to see, it was.
