Video

The original video was retweeted more than 300,000 times, liked 400,000 times on Twitter and looped more than two million times on Vine. The original video clip is a 30-second compilation of Lara striding around school, with Holz complimenting him by repeatedly saying Damn Daniel!" and occasionally following the catchphrase with: "Back at it again with the white Vans." In the video, Lara wore a navy blue hoodie, skinny chinos, a burgundy backpack, and the slip-on sneakers. This led to Lara and Holz guest appearing on Ellen, soon after, where Lara received a lifetime supply of Vans' shoes. Lara donated the shoes to patients at Loma Linda University Children's Hospital in California[10][11]
