MA-Based Ocean Spray Sends Truckload of Juice to TikTok Sensation
According to a report from WCVB, the CEO of Lakeville, Massachusetts-based Ocean Spray sent a whole truckload of Cran-Raspberry juice to Nathan Apocada.
Nathan created a TikTok video showing himself skateboarding, listening to Dreams by Fleetwood Mac and drinking Ocean Spray juice.
The video went VIRAL, with others trying to replicate what appeared to be Zen-like state of mind that Nathan had while on his journey to work. The original video got more than 25 million views!
The CEO of Ocean Spray, Tom Hayes, went online and paid tribute to Nathan and created his own skateboarding video.
Nathan said that he was using the skateboard to get to and from work since his car battery died. That's dedication to your job, right there!
If you haven't seen the video yet, it's really nothing special. It just happened to BLOW UP! You never know what's going to resonate with people.
Here it is:
It also got the attention of Mick Fleetwood who also did his own tribute on TikTok, but I don't believe he was really riding a skateboard. I just don't buy it. Check it out:
This whole thing made me think for about 5 minutes if I wanted to download TikTok, but then I thought better of it. Enough people are trying to get my likes/dislikes, etc., etc. Besides, do I really want my silly dances to go viral?
One more thing - if Nathan's car battery died, you would think that Ocean Spray could have sent him a check to get it fixed rather than a truckload of cranberry juice. Seriously, where is he going to keep all that?
