Skateboarding TikToker Who Swigged Cranberry Juice To Fleetwood Mac Gets Gift From Ocean Spray
After Nathan Apodaca posted a sensational TikTok video set to Fleetwood Mac, he received over $10,000 in donations and inspired plenty of parodies.
The cranberry juice-swilling, Fleetwood Mac-loving skateboarder who recently took over TikTok got an amazing gift from Ocean Spray.
A brand representative showed up to Nathan Apodaca’s home in Idaho Falls, ID on Tuesday and gifted him a brand new truck with a trunk full of Ocean Spray products. Apodaca last month posted the viral TikTok set to the ‘70s song “Dreams,” and it has attracted over 26 million views.
“This is from Ocean Spray to you. Thanks for keeping it positive. That truck is yours. All the Ocean Spray is yours,” the rep says in a video posted to Instagram.
Apodaca responded, “No way,” and, "That's crazy."
Apodaca then posted a video of himself cruising in his new ride and sipping his signature cranberry beverage to one of Fleetwood Mac’s most famous jams.
“Thanks for the new wheels ocean spray!” he wrote in the post.
The gift from Ocean Spray came after Apodaca told TMZ and other outlets that he made the popular video after his car had broken down on the way to work.
"I was coming to work and, like I said, my car, it just shuts off sometimes. The battery, I don't know what it is, just shuts off,” he explained to TMZ. “I always have my longboard in there, in case I run out of gas or something. So I just jumped on my longboard, I was like I’ll just come and figure it out after work.”
Since his sensational TikTok video, Apodaca, whose handle is @420doggface208, told interviewers that generous viewers have sent him over $10,000. He has said he’ll use the contributions to get his own place, since he’s currently living in an RV with no running water parked in front of his brother's house. He also said he will give $5,000 to his mom.
Plenty of other TikTokers have since posted their own videos set to “Dreams,” including Fleetwood Mac co-founder Mick Fleetwood, who appeared to join the platform specifically to post a parody.
Rolling Stone also reported a 127% jump in streams for the song “Dreams” in the days following Apodaca’s TikTok video.
