Nathan Apocada is known on TikTok for his range of feel-good videos, which often feature him skating and dancing. His clips have featured songs by other artists, including Anderson Paak, A-Ha and Avril Lavigne.

Recently, he spoke to TMZ about the viral post, which came into fruition after his car broke down on the way to work one morning (hence the skating).

“My car, it just shuts off sometimes,” he explained. “The battery ― I don’t know what it is ― just shuts off. I always have my long board in there, in case I run out of gas or something.”

As of September 30, TMZ reported Apocada had received around USD$10,000 to help fix his car or potentially upgrade to a new one.
