Let us begin this with some advice for you: Just keep snapping, don’t stop snapping. Why? Because one day you can become a star overnight, just ask Daniel Lara. It’s very simple, you don’t even have to have super comedy skills. A random video that you make about some stupid stuff might, to your biggest surprise, appeal to a lot of people out there who would show it several times and make you a star.
You don’t think it’s that simple, do you? Well, think Daniel Lara’s fucking Daniel video. It didn’t make any sense why a video of a guy in his van sneakers being filmed with his boyfriend/cameraman strutting around in his van sneakers repeatedly saying “Damn Daniel” and “Back with the white vans” would spread. Oh! but today we live in a completely different world where anything is possible with social media.
Daniel Lara wasn’t even ready for the fame, but he did it so well that you don’t even have to be prepared for it. But he owed his composure in the whole thing with fame to the fact that he was still a minor and his parents helped him to cope with it all.
Lara profited a lot from his damn Daniel star fame, from an appearance in the show The Ellen DeGeneres to several ladies who proposed to him. Well, this kind of fame has a downside – it can’t last.
And not in the way Daniel had hoped “his” would last. He joked to Rolling Stone magazine that the success of the video was a coincidence. Daniel is back in his normal life, but if at any time in the future he should consider a career in the entertainment industry, he should have it easier than a newcomer. Even though the few days of fame for Daniel Lara may be over, it’s good to have his biography here on the net, so you’ll always have something to remember when you think of that Damn-Daniel video.
Daniel Lara Bio (Family Life and Other Background Info)
Daniel Lara was born on April 4, 2001, in Riverside, California. He was raised by his parents in Los Angeles. He has a sister whose photos, along with those of his mother, occasionally publish in social media. Lara had what you might call a normal upbringing. As he grew up, he learned to love what average LA teenagers would love. He listens to a lot of rap music, his favorite rappers are the Trio Migos.
When it was time for his high school education, Lara chose Riverside Polytechnic High School, where he would be part of the school’s swimming team. Even before high school, he was friends with Josh Holz (the Damn’s cameraman, Daniel-Videos), whom he met by playing Minecraft on the X-Box in middle school.
After Lara became popular with Damn, Daniel, some media began reporting that he had posted comic videos on Vine and YouTube. However, Daniel exposed this information by making it clear that he had only posted them on Snapchat and that the Damn, Daniel video that spread on Twitter was a compilation of his Snapchat videos that were praised by his friends as very funny.
Damn, Daniel became a viral meme almost instantly. Within a few days, it had accumulated over 45 million hits. That kind of fame quickly shoots you into the mainstream, and Daniel was no exception. His Twitter followers skyrocketed to over 180,000 and over 620,000 on Instagram.
Daniel and his friend Holz soon had an appearance on the Ellen DeGeneres Show, where they could tell you more about how they became famous. After this TV appearance, the shoe manufacturer Vans gave him a lifetime supply of the famous Vans sneakers. However, Daniel donated the shoes to the Loma Linda University Children’s Hospital in Southern California. Lara gave a total of 100 pairs of sneakers.
The mainstream appearance of Lara and Holz did not stop at an appearance at Ellen’s. Ellen got her to replace her on the red carpet of the MTV Movie Awards, where the duo conducted interviews with Ice Cube and Seth Rogen, among others. In addition, Daniel Lara was recommended by a number of celebrities such as Pharrell Williams.
After the sensation subsided, Daniel Lara pretty much returned to his normal life, which included focusing on graduating from high school. Lara is not quite sure how things will go on for him, but the world is eagerly waiting. He told RS that he wouldn’t mind modeling for some of his favorite brands, and why not? he has the looks, the steps, and the size.
