Apodaca went viral this year after he filmed himself riding a skateboard away from his broken-down truck while lip-syncing Fleetwood Mac’s “Dreams” and drinking from an Ocean Spray Cranberry juice bottle. It was a bit of a strange piece of content to go viral, in our opinion, but it seems something about Apodaca’s carefree, happy nature in the face of a fairly major problem drew people to the video.
Ocean Spray later decided to capitalize on the publicity surrounding Apodaca’s viral video and gifted him a Nissan Frontier Pro-4X to replace the broken-down truck that sparked the viral sensation. However, it seems he decided he wanted something a bit bigger than the Frontier, as he recently posted a video to his TikTok account indicating that he swapped his gifted Nissan for a Chevy Silverado Z71.
It’s hard to blame Apodaca for wanting to trade his Nissan in for something a bit more upscale. Not only is the Silverado bigger than the Frontier, it’s also a more up-to-date vehicle. This current-generation Frontier has actually been on sale in the U.S. in its current form since 2004, whereas the Silverado was redesigned for the 2019 model year.
The Frontier that Ocean Spray gifted Apodaca was dark red – reminiscent of the color of the cranberry juice that helped give him the six million followers he enjoys on TikTok today. He decided to stick with this theme for his Chevy Silverado Z71, as he elected for a Cajun Red Tintcoat painted Chevy Silverado. His Frontier may be history, but its spirit sort of lives on in his similarly-colored Chevy.
