Viral Fleetwood Mac Skateboarder Given $10,000 By Strangers On The Internet
| Last updated
The guy who went viral the other day for just chilling out while skateboarding down the street, drinking juice and listening to Fleetwood Mac, has been rewarded for his good vibes after receiving $10,000 (£7,821) from people on the internet.
Nathan Apodaca says the money raised from the generosity of strangers will go towards improving his life through buying a new RV - recreational vehicle, to the non-USA folks - and upgrading his car.
So, the term 'recreational vehicle' is not really correct in Nathan's case, in that he actually lives in his.
At the minute, he has no running water, so is parked outside his brother's house in Idaho Falls so that he can use the shower and toilet.
This means that the $10,000 people have given is much-needed, and will really make a difference to Nathan's life.
The money, which has been received through PayPal, Cash App, and Venmo, will help him have somewhere to cook food, clean, and - well - you can imagine what else.
As for the car, that's just going to help him exist normally. He works in a potato factory - that's where he was coming back from when he filmed the viral video - and having a working car would certainly make that a lot easier.
Drinking juice and listening to music is definitely easier in the car, if done safely.
Also, it turns out he's just a good guy, and plans to use some of the cash generated to help other people in his life, too.
He's already pledged to give his dear old mum $5,000 (£3,897) as a surprise, and has bought his girlfriend a new washer and dryer already.
Nathan has also gifted his daughter some new clothes.
He also hopes that this incident of fate could turn into something a bit more lucrative for him, as he revealed to TMZ that Footlocker has been in touch with him.
Admittedly, he says that he's only hoping the shoe chain will offer him some free clothes, but you never know, right?
In an ideal world, he says that Ocean Spray or even Fleetwood Mac might get in touch with him. That would be some juice advert, wouldn't it?
