That Cranberry Juice-Drinking Skateboarder Has Links To Yakima
By now, you've seen the video. If you haven’t seen it, it’s the hottest video on Tik-Tok. It shows an Idaho Falls man simply skateboarding while drinking Cranberry juice, while Fleetwood Mac’s ‘Dreams’ plays in the background.
Ladies and Gentlemen, may I introduce you to Nathan Apodaca.
His story is awesome. His truck broke down and he had to skateboard to work. This time he drank cranberry juice. And he decided to Tik-Tok it. Now he is world wide star thanks to this simple video.
Nathan has ties to the Yakima Valley as he has family on the Yakima Nation Reservation.
A lot has happened for Nathan since he went viral. Ocean Spray bought him a truck, people have donated THOUSANDS of dollars to him, MICK FLEETWOOD posted a response, and he even has a clothing line that's blowing up. Now he has an agent and is on his way to becoming a social media star.
And now, thanks to his video, Fleetwood Mac’s ‘Dreams’ originally released in 1977, has now hit #1 on iTunes. And their "Greatest Hits" album was has hit #5.
And now there are TONS of copy cat videos. Including Mick Fleetwood himself.
It's easy to see why Nathan has captivated a nation. Nathan radiates the mood and vibe that we so desperately need right now in 2020.
Nathan was living in a trailer without running water, parking in front of his brother's house. If anyone had a reason to be sour at that particular moment, it was Nathan Apodaca. Yet there he is, skateboarding down the road, smiling, drinking his Cranberry juice, all while vibing on his way to work.
Nathan is the antidote to 2020 in human form. Let’s all try to be a little more like Nathan. Skate with a smile on our faces.
While drinking cranberry juice.
All My Best,
