It’s also a space for politicians to jump on the latest trends.
Most recently, that means NDP leader Jagmeet Singh skateboarding down an autumnal path while vibing to ’70s soft rock.
Singh posted his version of the viral “Dreams” TikTok this week, which has users skateboarding while sipping a beverage and singing along to Fleetwood Mac’s song, “Dreams.
“Autumn vibe,” Singh captioned the video.
The NDP leader is the latest public figure to cruise to the laid back tune while sipping on a bevvie. TikTok user Doggface208 (real name Nathan Apodaca) was the first to popularize the trend.
People latched onto Apodaca’s calm demeanour and incredibly chill vibes. When the world feels like it’s on fire, we all wish we could just be cruising with a big ol’ jug of cran-raspberry juice.
Apodaca’s original TikTok caught on, with millions of views since it was first posted Sept. 25. The original song’s sales tripled and streams doubled in the week after the TikTok was first released.
Original Fleetwood Mac drummer Mick Fleetwood even joined in with his own tribute.
“Dreams and Cranberry just hits different,” Fleetwood wrote.
And of course, the challenge got the autumnal pumpkin spice treatment, with one user rolling down a fall path with a pumpkin on his head and a latte in hand.
Oh, to be leisurely rolling down a path with a beverage right now!
Not Singh’s first rodeo
This isn’t Singh’s first foray into viral challenges. Back in May he participated in the viral “flip the switch” challenge with his wife Gurkiran to help encourage Canadians to stay home during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Singh’s TikTok game first rose to popularity during last year’s federal election campaign
So far he’s the only federal leader to jump on the platform. But here’s hoping we see Tory Leader Erin O’Toole and Prime Minister Justin Trudeau following his lead and doing some vibing to Fleetwood Mac soon.
