How this cranberry juice-sipping skateboarder taught the internet to chill out

A laid-back skateboarder and his bottle of Ocean Spray cran-raspberry juice have inspired people to live a blissed-out life of “Dreams.”

Nathan Apodaca, 37, went viral for the “morning vibe” of a TikTok video posted on Sept. 25 that shows him leisurely skating on his longboard while sipping from a jug of Ocean Spray and lip-syncing to Stevie Nicks’ vocals from the Fleetwood Mac song “Dreams.”

It not only has brought the hit song from 1977 roaring back on to the charts, it also has ended with the father of two from Idaho inspiring others to share their own “no worries” moment of gliding along to “Dreams” with a drink in hand under the hashtag #DreamsChallenge.

None other than Mick Fleetwood himself of Fleetwood Mac joined TikTok just to share a video of himself sipping some Ocean Spray and vibing to “Dreams” in homage to Apodaca, who goes by @420doggface208 on TikTok, where he has more than 2 million followers.

“@420doggface208 had it right,” Fleetwood wrote. “Dreams and Cranberry just hits different. #Dreams #CranberryDreams #FleetwoodMac”

The popularity of the original video caused a surge of 8.47 million on-demand streams of “Dreams” in the U.S. for the week ending Oct. 1, up 125% from the previous week, according to Billboard.

Everyone from ESPN host Trey Wingo to the Phoenix Police Department to the lieutenant governor of Montana has since shared a video for the #DreamsChallenge while putting their own spin on it.

Ocean Spray CEO Tom Hayes also got in on the act.

The reason Apodaca was on the skateboard in the first place was because his truck with more than 300,000 miles on it broke down, so he had to ride the longboard to work.

Ocean Spray made sure his truck woes are in the past by
