Our king of curating good vibes isn’t going to let a bout of coronavirus dampen his groove. Apodaca took it on the chin and shared a video of him dancing to Gloria Gaynor’s perennial disco anthem ‘I Will Survive.’ King shit.

The Nathan Apodaca story is one of the only joys I’ve felt this year. The 37-year-old was on his way to his job at a potato warehouse when his car battery died and was forced to ride his skateboard to work instead. Thus, the iconic ‘Dreams’ video was born.

At the time, he was living in a trailer with no electricity or running water. Following the success of the viral TikTok, Apodaca’s life took a 180. Devotees at the chapel of good vibes blessed Apodaca with a “life-changing” USD $15,000 in online donations. Ocean Spray also gifted him a cranberry red truck as a token of appreciation for the kind of advertising that money can’t buy.

The video also gained the attention of members of Fleetwood Mac. Witchy princess Stevie Nicks paid homage to the video by sharing a TikTok of her seated at a piano, lacing up a pair of roller skates whilst singing along to the Rumours classic. “Afternoon vibe,” she wrote.

Whilst Mick Fleetwood delivered his best recreation of the skateboarding video – complete with Cran-Raspberry in hand.

“@420doggface208 had it right,” he captioned the video of himself appearing to cruise around while drinking the beverage. “Dreams and Cranberry just hits different.”
