But there’s already a new contender for the internet’s flavour of the month…
And for those of you who may have missed the original ‘Damn, Daniel’ meme here’s a mega cut of all the fun:

He credits his success to three core techniques, name repetition, personality mirroring, and never breaking off a handshake.
