The Fleetwood Mac Skater Is One Of The Few People Enjoying 2020 And His Year Just Got Even Better
By now, you’ve likely seen the super vibey TikTok video of a skater cruising down the streets, nursing a bottle of cranberry juice and vibing out to Fleetwood Mac’s ‘Dreams. The 22-second clip is a whole vibe. The carefree energy radiating from the short clip is what we all aspire to achieve in life and seeing @420doggface208 master it all so effortlessly is a pure joy to watch.
Tío TikTok aka Nathan Apodaca is the grown man who’s single-handedly bringing Gen-Z app TikTok, to Millennials. And in doing so, he’s helped bring a bit of positivity into this absolutely chaotic year that is 2020.
Tío TikTok might be a little older than the app’s intended audience, but he still managed to make his content go viral.
Last week, Nathan Apodaca had the whole internet vibing along with him when he uploaded a TikTok skateboarding to Fleetwood Mac while sipping on a giant bottle of cranberry juice.
With 22 million views on TikTok alone, it’s no surprise that ‘Dreams’ by Fleetwood Mac — the song Apodaca set his iconic skating video to — has skyrocketed back onto the charts.
Nathan’s original video sparked the so-called “Dreams” challenge on TikTok, which racked up millions of views. His video even helped get him tens of thousands of dollars in donations from strangers all over the country, who wanted to help him fulfill his dream of upgrading his RV.
His latest video has even drawn the attention of Ocean Spray – yes, the juice company.
Tío TikTok’s latest video even gained the attention of Ocean Spray, which helped put a little bit of extra joy into the TikToker’s life. The juice company just gifted Apodaca with a brand new pickup truck, filled with all sorts of Ocean Spray products.
A rep for Ocean Spray rolled up to Tío TikTok’s RV Tuesday in Idaho and the dude who just loves sipping cranberry juice while vibing to “Dreams” was surprised by the generosity.
In the video released by Ocean Spray, Nathan hopped out of his RV to meet the juice guy, who told him the truck and all the juice in its flatbed were all his! The Ocean Spray rep thanked Nathan — as we all do — for keeping the positive vibes going.
And spawned a viral TikTok challenge with thousands of people trying to recreate his vibe.
Apodaca obviously gained the attention of Fleetwood Mac, including the groups lead singer Mick Fleetwood. But Tío TikTok’s video has launched an entire TikTok challenge, with countless recreations of the original skateboard video popping up all over social media.
Between using giant margarita glasses instead of plastic bottles, swapping skateboards for train carts and Heelys, and eating tacos in place of sipping cranberry juice, everyone’s desperate to get on the same level as the Vibe King.
Apodaca was introduced to the app by his Gen Z daughters, and his videos soon went viral.
Tío TikTok was unaware of the popular video-app himself. His daughters, Makyla and Angelia, are the ones who first introduced Apocada’s to the platform. His youngest daughter even helped him film his first video, which quickly went viral. Apodaca confesses that he was stumped as to what to do, or what type of content to publish on his app, but his eldest daughter came to the rescue and suggested he did his usual goofy dances on camera. And just like that, Apodaca turned into a TikTok sensation.
In his video’s he’s usually goofing around at work or high off weed which has made his content recognizable.
In one of his most liked posts, Nathan is seen sitting on a conveyor belt lip-syncing Sublime’s ’90s classic hit ‘Santeria’ at the factory where he works and films most of his videos. The post earned 26.9 thousand likes and received thousands of hilarious comments like “*OSHA has entered the chat*” by @BertoBitch or “The workers that package for WISH…”
Apodaca is the stoner uncle you never knew you needed on social media.
His hashtags regularly include 420, 710, ‘high’ and ‘gogreen’, stoner terms used to celebrate dabs and cannabis concentrates. His song choices, usually pulled from an unpredictably random selection, often celebrate the plant too. @Doggface208 aka Nathan Apodaca loves weed so much that he, ingeniously, linked his PayPal account on his TikTok bio for donations; “Now accepting donations 4 Flower ???? n white Ts PayPal email@example.com” reads his profile description. Whether the account is real or not, we’re not sure, but you’re welcome to send a little donation and let us know.
