It's been said that the energy one puts out into the world comes back to them tenfold. In the case of one Nathan Apodaca, that saying has become magically real. Last weekend, Nathan was having a tough day getting to work. It happens to all of us. Instead of getting into a rage, he simply chose the path of least resistance--which in this case, was riding a skateboard to the j-o-b after his car broke down--and making the best of it by adding a little classic Fleetwood Mac and a jug of his favorite juice.
After Apodaca shared his zen moment with the world, the world has responded in kind. Much more than just a viral hero, this Northern Star in the chaotic world of 2020 is a true inspiration.
When Apodaca shared his love of Ocean Spray's Cran-Raspberry drink, it was only a matter of time before the juice-makers did the right thing and rewarded the rider for the kind of exposure money can't buy.
"This is from Ocean Spray to you. Thanks for keeping it positive. That truck is yours. All the Ocean Spray is yours,” a company rep said in a new Ocean Spray Instagram post. Watch it below.
Ocean Spray is enjoying this moment to the fullest, with company CEO officially launching the #dreamschallenge. Watch his clip below.
As for our hero, the man who introduced himself to the world as "420DoggFace208"? He's simply enjoying the ride, a little juice, and life. Respect to the legend Nathan Apodaca!
Thanks for the new wheels ocean spray! 🙏. @tomhayes603 ##oceanspray♬ original sound - doggface208
