Stevie Nicks Joins in Viral Fleetwood Mac 'Cranberry Dreams' TikTok Trend

Stevie Nicks has joined TikTok with a tribute to the man who went viral for skateboarding to Fleetwood Mac's Dreams while drinking Ocean Spray cranberry juice.

In the video, Nicks sings over her own voice while tying up the laces on her roller skates, with a bottle of Ocean Spray near her feet. Nicks, who wrote the song, sings the opening lyrics: "Now, here you go again/You say, you want your freedom/Well, who am I to keep you down."

The singer captioned the video: "Afternoon vibe. Lace 'em up!" and tagged Nathan Apodaca, who goes by @420doggface208 on TikTok. Nicks' first TikTok now has more than 10 million views within ten hours of being posted.

Nicks is not the first member of Fleetwood Mac to acknowledge the viral Dreams video, which now has nearly 50 million views at the time of writing.

Mick Fleetwood, the band's drummer and founding member, recreated Apodaca's TikTok in a video that saw him skateboarding and lip-syncing to Dreams, with a bottle of Ocean Spray in hand. Fleetwood's video has been viewed more than 11 million times.

The drummer even wrote to Apodaca to congratulate him and said: "What a wild ride you are on! I'm so glad you inspired me to become a part of your fantastic journey! How great it is it that you have brought so many smiles to millions of people in a world just when it is/was needed."

Fleetwood also surprised Apodaca during a BBC interview last week, when the drummer told Apodaca: "I hope Stevie's watching. She's going to be overjoyed."

The viral TikTok has also brought Apodaca material success.

It caught the attention of Ocean Spray, and to thank Apodaca for the free advertising, the chief executive Tom Hayes—who also joined in the TikTok trend—gifted Apodaca with a new truck.

Hayes said in a statement: "When we saw Nathan Apodaca's video and the joy it created, we knew we needed to celebrate him and the happiness he spurred.

"Yesterday Ocean Spray was humbled to gift Nathan with something of importance to him—a truck we knew he needed."

Now, Apodaca is making the most of his viral success, having recently announced a merchandise line featuring a Halloween costume of himself.

According to Apodaca's website, before the TikTok went viral he was working on a potato farm in Idaho and living in a trailer with no electricity or running water, while taking care of his two teenage daughters. In the video, Apodaca was skateboarding to work because his car had broken down.

The website says that the thousands of dollars donated by fans have changed Apodaca's life, and says: "Stay tuned for what's next for the man the world fell in love with during a time when we all needed to smile."
