Viral Fleetwood Mac Skateboarder Is Selling His TikTok As A $500,000 NFT

TikTok star Nathan Apodaca, better known by his username “420doggface208”, first burst to fame after a video of him recording himself skateboarding and lip syncing to ‘Dreams’ by Fleetwood Mac while drinking a bottle of Ocean Spray cran-raspberry juice went viral on TikTok in September last year.

In case you’re still confused, this is the video I’m talking about:

Since achieving massive success from the video, Apodaca has been able to make more money from merch sales and donations, which he credits to helping him live more “comfortable” financially.

And now, the 37-year-old has announced that he will be partnering with crypto-focused media company CryptoCake to list his popular video as a non-fungible token (NFT) at a starting bid of $500,000 (RM2 million).

For those who are unfamiliar with the world of cryptocurrency, an NFT is a unique digital file that grants you its exclusive ownership on blockchain.

Apodaca says he hopes to use the proceeds of the sale to buy his parents a house, as well as fund an event centre in Idaho Falls, which sounds like such a sweet and noble gesture.

But here’s the thing, the potential owner wouldn’t exactly get the video in its original state because Apodaca doesn’t have rights to feature Fleetwood Mac’s song or the Ocean Spray logo in his video, so the clip will probably just show Apodaca skateboarding in silence while drinking something from a blurred out bottle.

Also, the video will still be available on the internet for free in its original form even after it gets sold as an NFT, so it’s quite puzzling to know who’d want to spend so much money on something that’s already so accessible.

But you know, if you have $500,000 to spare and you just had to have this video, then head on over to NFT marketplace Rarible and claim your ownership.
