Whatever may be the hazards of social media, one thing is for sure: it brings you instant fame.
Yes, you gain the spotlight real quick, faster than it takes to pepper an egg with a caster.
A TikTokker who went viral after sharing a video of himself skateboarding to the tune of the song Dreams by Fleetwood Mac will appear in Joe Biden’s virtual inauguration parade.
Nathan Apodaca became an internet sensation last year after a video of him skateboarding to work while drinking cranberry juice and listening to “Dreams” blew up online, according to the Independent.
The video was recreated by everyone from Kyle MacLachlan to Mick Fleetwood and Stevie Nicks themselves, with “Dreams” re-entering the charts in the UK and US thanks to the clip.
Now, TMZ reports that Apodaca will appear in Biden’s inauguration parade, which takes place after the president-elect is sworn into office on Wednesday (20 January).
With coronavirus regulations preventing large groups from congregating, the parade will be a virtual event featuring the stories and talents of people from across the US.
Members of Biden’s inauguration planning team reached out to Apodaca after they saw how his TikTok clip uplifted people during a time of unrest.
The internet personality has already filmed his footage for the event, with a representative confirming to the Independent that he would be taking part.
Apodaca was living in an RV with no running water at the time of filming the TikTok, but was able to purchase a five-bedroom house in Idaho after the video went viral.
Biden traces his ancestry to Ireland. His great-great grandfathers called Bluett and Fitzpatrick were born in Ireland and emigrated to the US in the late 1840s and early 1850s.
Some 25.5 million first doses of COVID-19 vaccines have been shipped out to hospitals, clinics and nursing homes across the country, but only around 9 million have been injected, according to official data.
Former Vice President Joe Biden is trying to reassure voters. Like former President Obama, he is promising that “If you like your health plan, your employer-based plan, you can keep it.” Don’t bet on it. Some presidential candidates support directly outlawing private health plans, and replacing them with a single-payer, government-run health plan.
The 2020 election is shaping up arguably as the most fascinating presidential selection event in modern history. Republicans are going with an incumbent whose post-inaugural job approval until last weekend has never exceeded 46%, not coincidentally the exact same percentage of the popular vote he received.
