It's always refreshing when a new trend meets an old trend. In the summer of 2020, that unlikely, yet beautiful, mashup happened when Fleetwood Mac's 1977 hit song "Dreams" found it's place on TikTok and quickly made for a viral video. TikTok users could open the app at any given time and see groovy videos of people skateboarding to the track and it brought instant happiness. That's why we rounded up these five other Fleetwood Mac songs for TikToks that are just as catchy and viral-video worthy.
While there were millions of TikToks set to "Dreams," the most popular might be Nathan Apodaca's video of himself casually skateboarding down the street while chugging cranberry juice straight from the bottle. The video got so much attention that as of October 2020, it now airs on TVs as an official commercial for the social media app.
Apodaca's video came about just like how millions of other TikToks do: by chance. "I grabbed my longboard, grabbed my juice, and then took off,” he told E! News. “I was looking through my favorite songs and Fleetwood Mac is in the top 10. It just felt right and I did it all in one take.” Apocada's video now has more than 60 million views thanks to his effortless vibes and his flawless music taste.
