SAN FRANCISCO, Calif. (KRON) – Nathan Apodaca, the viral skateboarder “Dreams” from Fleetwood Mac, lost his luck after a trip to San Francisco with his family last week.
According to TMZ, Apodaca’s two rental cars were broken into after being parked in a garage near Twin Peaks Overlook.
Twin Peaks happens to be a robbery hotspot. SF District 8 supervisor Rafael Mandelman tweeted about a news reporter who was robbed at gunpoint while interviewing someone about car break-ins on Wednesday.
According to the report, Apodaca’s family “lost credit cards, checks, sunglasses, reading glasses, and some wallets with identifying information.”
Estimated loss of damage is $ 4,000.
This isn’t the first time Apodaca has had bad luck with cars.
His car broke down back in September, but it got him to release a TikTok that now has over 80 million views.
The video shows him drinking Ocean Spray cran raspberry juice based on Fleetwood Mac’s “Dreams”.
According to Billboard, the 1977 # 1 hit had the biggest week of streaming ever thanks to the viral TikTok, with over 8.47 million streams.
The video also inspired a San Francisco artist to create a mural of Apodaca that can be seen outside the CVS on Haight and Fillmore Streets.
Car break-ins remain a common problem for many people in San Francisco.
There were reportedly 942 vehicle break-ins, or around 33 per day, in February 2021.
