Mick Fleetwood Surprises TikTok Star Behind Viral Dreams Video

"We owe you," Fleetwood Mac's co-founder quipped to Nathan Apodaca, whose groovy clip has prompted a streaming spike for the band's 1977 classic.

Dreams truly keep coming true for Nathan Apodaca, the man whose groovy interpretation of a Fleetwood Mac classic has made him an internet superstar.

Two weeks ago, Nathan ― who goes by @420doggface208 on TikTok ― posted footage of himself lip-syncing to Fleetwood Mac’s Dreams while riding a skateboard and sipping from a bottle of cranberry juice.

Though simple in its execution, the 22-second video went viral and has since been viewed more than 69 million times on TikTok and Twitter.

It also prompted a streaming spike for Dreams, which originally appeared on Fleetwood Mac’s 1977 masterpiece album, Rumours.

According to Billboard, the song garnered 8.47 million on-demand streams in the US last week, an increase of 125% compared with the previous week.

Last weekend, Fleetwood Mac co-founder Mick Fleetwood got in on the fun, too, posting his own take on Apodaca’s moves as his debut TikTok post.

On Thursday, the two men were virtually united in a joint BBC News interview, at which point the drummer personally thanked Nathan for having revived interest in his band’s 43-year-old song.

“We owe you,” Mick said. “It’s such a great story, and so needed in days that are really challenging. It makes people smile, and I’m so happy to be part of it.”

After congratulating Nathan “on a wild, wild skateboard journey that has led us to talking today,” he added, “You’re right in my heart.”

Speaking to Andy Cohen on Sirius XM that same day, Mick said bandmate Stevie Nicks, who wrote Dreams, would’ve saluted the social media star on his success, too.

“She must be celebrating right now,” he said. “It’s great to be connected unexpectedly. That’s what I think is so cool about this. It’s not all super-planned and super-anything.”

It turns out, virtually meeting Mick Fleetwood wasn’t the only surprise Nathan received this week.

Prior to that, Ocean Spray gave its unexpected spokesman a new pickup truck, filled with ― what else? ― bottles of his trademark drink.
