Watch Idaho’s Doggface208’s ‘The First Time’ Interview with Rolling Stone
Idaho's very own, @Doggface208 who's real name Nathan Apodaca, became a viral sensation last year after posting the iconic TikTok video of him longboarding to Fleetwood Mac’s “Dreams” while drinking a bottle of Ocean Spray cranberry juice. It's fair to say he was one of the year's biggest moments in pop culture!
Nathan is now doing very well him for himself. Despite testing positive for COVID-19 early in December, he has proposed to his girlfriend and even purchased a new home since achieving international fame!
Nathan recently talked with Rolling Stone as part of their popular "The First Time" interview series. Although we've talked about Nathan a lot, this the most I've ever learned about him. He shares things like when he very first began drinking cranberry juice and the first time he ever listened to Fleetwood Mac.
Nathan later touches on in the interview how he even came up with the now-legendary TikTok username doggface208. Of course, the 208 part is homage to Boise, Idaho! He also talks about his work experience prior to his viral fame, which included working at a potato warehouse. In fact, the story goes he was his way to work at said potato factory when his car battery died, so he improvised on a whim by using his skateboard and recorded the TikTok for fun and the rest was history.
Other "first time" stories in the interview include his first time smoking weed, getting a tattoo, and buying an album. Check out his full Rolling Stone interview below!
