Fleetwood Mac has been trending due to a viral TikTok video of a man lip-syncing to the song ‘Dreams’ while skateboarding and drinking from a large bottle of cranberry juice.
The British-American rock band formed in London in 1967 and was founded by guitarist Peter Green, drummer Mick Fleetwood, and guitarist Jeremy Spencer before bassist John McVie joined the group for their self-titled debut album. Danny Kirwan joined as a third guitarist in 1968.
The band’s song ‘Dreams’ reached No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 in 1977 and forty-three years later TikTok user @420doggface208 has got people listening to the popular song once again.
The short clip that he shared has already received more than 3 million views on the social platform and has Fleetwood Mac trending on Twitter.
‘Dreams’ was last seen in the Hot Rock Songs chart in 2018 after another meme caused a boost in the song’s already huge popularity, and now the song’s return to the Billboard charts could be incredibly high again after featuring in yet another viral video.
Many fans commented on how “peaceful” and “soothing” they found the TikTok video, which shows the man skateboarding in a moment of absolute joy.
One fan tweeted: “this man managed to capture the exact feeling you get when listening to fleetwood mac.”
