Mick Fleetwood Joins TikTok And Recreates Skateboarder's 'Dreams' Video

Mick Fleetwood Joins TikTok And Recreates Skateboarder's 'Dreams' Video

Mick Fleetwood has joined TikTok to recreate the viral video of the skateboarder listening to Fleetwood Mac while sipping on some cranberry juice.

After seeing Nathan Apodaca - aka doggface208 - chilling while singing along to 'Dreams', the rock legend decided to give it a go himself and posted his own version to his new account.

He captioned the video: "@420doggface208 had it right. Dreams and Cranberry just hits different."

In the clip, the 73-year-old seems to be loving life, much like the skater, though he doesn't manage to get through as much of his drink as the viral star.

And with the Nathan's video seeing streaming figures for the 1977 tune skyrocket, it's no wonder Mick is so happy. Ch-ching!

According to Rolling Stone, the hit usually clocks up around 490,000 streams a day, but just a few days after Nathan's clip hit the headlines, that figure shot up to an average a million times a day.

Sales of the song have also increased by an incredible 184 percent from 26 to 28 September, while Spotify revealed the number of streams of 'Dreams' had increased by 127 percent.

And on top of that, it's also recorded a 242 percent boost in the number of first-time listeners.

Overwhelmed by Mick's support, Nathan shared the clip to his Twitter account, thanking him for the tribute.

But it's not Mick's pockets that have been lined as a result of the video's success. Nathan was also rewarded for his good vibes, receiving $10,000 (£7,821) from people on the internet.

Nathan 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 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.
