A delivery driver was asked to send a skateboard to Tony Hawk by a young fan, and Hawk is sending a skateboard of his own right back.
The TikTok user @fresh2deaf, or Mikail as it says in his profile, posted to TikTok describing an interaction with a young boy, about 8 or 9 years old, named Cooper.
"I'm doing my delivery route today and I see this little kid chasing my truck, trying to flag me down," Mikail said on TikTok. "So I pull over and I'm like, 'Hey man, what's up?'"
Cooper then asked whether Mikail could mail something for him, to which Mikail agreed.
"He runs in his house, and he comes back out and he goes, 'Hey, sir, do you know the pro skater Tony Hawk?'" Mikail recalled. "He said, 'Could you mail this to him?'
"'Get this to Tony Hawk for me, tell him it's from Cooper.' I just thought it was adorable."
The FedEx driver then said he couldn't mail it to Hawk, as he didn't have his address, but was putting the TikTok out there in the universe, hoping Hawk would see it and give Cooper a shout-out.
The video has been seen 4 million times, and it just so happens that one of those viewers was, in fact, Hawk.
"Hey, Cooper, what's up? It's Tony Hawk, and I just want to say thank you so much for the skateboard," Hawk said.
"It's on its way to my house already, and as a thank-you gift I'm going to send you my skateboard."
Hawk then held up the very skateboard he said he'd be sending to Mikail. "Thanks, buddy, I hope to meet you sometime!"
In the TikTok, Hawk thanked Mikail for his message and promised to give him his address and FedEx number for the exchange of gifts to take place.
