Mick Fleetwood crashed a Zoom interview with TikTok star Nathan Apodaca on Thursday (Oct. 9) to thank him for making “Dreams” go viral.
“One, we owe you,” the Fleetwood Mac founder told the Idaho native, whose serene video of himself lip-syncing to the iconic 1977 hit — while riding a skateboard and drinking straight from a bottle of cranberry juice — has been viewed more than 34 million times on the platform. “It’s such a celebration of everything. I’ve heard you talking about it, and it’s so joyous and fun.”
During the chat, Fleetwood also revealed how his own recreation of the viral video came together, saying, “I was just led right into it. People around me were going like, ‘Dad, you’ve got to do this, it’s so cool.’ So we did it, and now here we are, talking.”
Apodaca’s TikTok video has also had a rather significant impact on the song’s performance — in the past week alone, “Dreams” has been streamed more than eight million times in the U.S. according to the BBC, marking its biggest week ever in the era of streaming.
“I just wanna say, outside of Fleetwood Mac, we owe you. It’s such a great story, and it’s so needed. In days that are really challenging…it makes people smile, and I’m so happy to be part of it. Congratulations on a wild, wild skateboard journey that has led us to talking today,” Fleetwood concluded, before adding, “I hope Stevie [Nicks]‘s watching. She’s going to be overjoyed.”
