(WHEC) — One young Tony Hawk fan got a chance to meet his idol thanks to a FedEx driver and TikTok.

It all started when 6-year-old Cooper tracked down driver Mikail Farrar in his neighborhood and asked him to mail his skateboard to Tony Hawk.

Farrar was determined to get the board to Hawk so he posted the incident on TikTok. That post got the skateboarding legend's attention.

Not even six hours after the initial video was posted online, Hawk saw the video and responded to Cooper. Hawk shared his appreciation for the gesture and wanted to send Cooper a new skateboard. 

Farrar says he only made a TikTok account to keep an eye on his daughter.and he never imagined he'd be able to use it for something like this.
