Mick Fleetwood joins TikTok to recreate viral Fleetwood Mac 'Dreams' video

Nathan Apodaca went viral with a post singing to the band's 1977 hit last week

They say imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, in which case Nathan Apodaca must be feeling very flattered indeed.

Last week, Apodaca went viral thanks to a TikTok video that shows him skateboarding down the street while drinking from a bottle of Ocean Spray Cran-Raspberry juice and lip-syncing to Fleetwood Mac's 1977 hit, Dreams.

On Sunday, Mick Fleetwood, founding member of the British-American rock band, set up a TikTok of his own. The rock star, 73, has only shared one video to date, a recreation of Apodaca's Fleetwood Mac tribute.

"@420doggface208 [Apodaca's TikTok user name] had it right. Dreams and Cranberry just hits different," Fleetwood captioned the video.

Like Apodaca's, Fleetwood's shows him drinking Cran-Raspberry juice and singing along to his band's seminal hit. It is not clear if he is skateboarding – he does not seem to be – and he has swapped a highway backdrop for a garden.

At the time of writing, the video had been live for 11 hours and had already totted up two million views and more than 428,000 likes.

Apodaca's video went live on Friday, September 25, and has had 21.7m views and more than 4m likes. He simply captioned his video, "Morning vibe".
