A TikToker has gone viral after spectacularly failing at a trend that sees people coasting around on skateboards drinking cranberry juice, inspired by the creator of the chill video, doggface208.

Since its invention, TikTok has been the prime spot for video trends that sweep the internet, with people using the app’s unique (and often slightly broken) effects along with countless viral sounds to produce some hilarious content.

And lots of people have made a name for themselves through their viral content, including doggface208, real name Nathan Apodaca.

What is the doggface208 skateboard trend on TikTok?

The user made waves in the TikTok world when he uploaded a video of him coasting along on a skateboard, swigging from a bottle of cranberry juice to the tune of “Dreams” by Fleetwood Mac.

The video now has a whopping 60 million views and 10 million likes, appearing across For You Pages globally, and inspiring the tag #dreamschallenge to surge in popularity, with plenty of people prompted to make their own versions. That’s how the trend started up.

Not as easy as it seems

TikTok user Julia Jamison was inspired to give the chill looking challenge ago.

She enlisted a little help from her friends, one of which was filming from a distance and the other who pushed her along on the skateboard.

Everything seemed to be going well initially, but when Julia lifted a foot off her skateboard for just a moment, her balance was thrown. She was sent crashing to the ground, the huge bottle of cranberry juice she was holding going everywhere.

The chaos continued as her hat fell off and her skateboard shot out from underneath her and away from the view of the camera. She couldn’t have gone down more spectacularly.

The unfortunate video has since garnered hundreds of thousands of likes on the pages that it has been reposted to, people both loving and cringing at the painful looking end to the viral trend.

Mr Beast teases chess match with grandmaster Hikaru

The Beast’s Gambit? After YouTuber Jimmy ‘MrBeast’ Donaldson revealed his ‘addiction’ to chess, and his wish to play with other creators, esports org TSM offered the services of their chess grandmaster, Hikaru Nakamura – and it’s looking like a collaboration is on the cards.

Chess has seen a big resurgence in popularity over the past year. After streamers like xQc and Forsen picked up the game early in 2020, chess.com established the Pogchamps: an amateur chess tournament. After the success of the first tournament, a second edition was completed in September.

Then Netflix released ‘The Queen’s Gambit’, a miniseries about a chess protege on a quest to conquer the chess world. The cultural impact has been insane. When the series was released, the International Chess Federation found that Google searches for people wanting to learn chess quadrupled.

MrBeast has already made his wish to get involved with esports abundantly clear. While chess isn’t technically an esport, the two overlap a lot nowadays, and this latest development seems like a definite step in that direction.

Mr Beast speaks to the camera in a vlog.

Mr Beast’s epic rise on YouTube has seen him do, and play, plenty of different things.

MrBeast teases match with TSM chess grandmaster Hikaru

After MrBeast tweeted out his desire to be matched up with chess content creators, TSM responded by offering the services of grandmaster, Hikaru.

“Just started playing chess a few days ago, any creators want to play? I’m addicted,” MrBeast said.

MrBeast then talked about his fascination with Hikaru’s work, explaining how he “watch[es] all his videos.” TSM looked to seal the deal, and replied: “Let’s make it happen.”

A chess matchup between MrBeast and Hikaru, or even some sort of tutorial, would be an exciting piece of prospective chess content. Hikaru seems keen to capitalize on the current hype around chess. After the success of the first two Pogchamps, Hikaru tweeted his desire for the third edition of PogChamps to be created.

He’s already had responses from big names, with Fnatic League coach YamatoCannon and StarCraft commentator Artosis willing to get involved.

If Hikaru’s bid to put together a new tournament comes to a head, perhaps we’ll be seeing MrBeast lining up as one of the competitors.
