Mick Fleetwood has joined TikTok to recreate a viral video of a man skating to Fleetwood Mac.

Last month, a clip went viral on the video-sharing app thanks to user Nathan Apodaca, who skateboarded along to the band’s 1977 song “Dreams” while mouthing the lyrics and drinking cranberry juice.

The video was shared widely on a number of social media platforms, with commenters saying that the video was “soothing” and they could only aspire to “be as cool as this guy”.

On Sunday (4 October), Fleetwood responded to the viral video by starting his own TikTok account to recreate the original clip.

In the video, the 73-year-old musician appears to be skating along in the rain, while wearing a dark grey t-shirt and gold pendant and drinking from a carton of cranberry juice.

“@420doggface208 had it right,” Fleetwood wrote. “'Dreams’ and Cranberry just hits different.”

The video was liked more than 400,000 times in the 11 hours since being uploaded, with Fleetwood amassing more than 50,000 followers.

Fleetwood Mac had originally shared their love for Apodaca’s video on Twitter, tweeting in September: “We love this!”
