What would you do if you were stuck in an airport, alone, and waiting to board a flight that was still hours away?
Some people would cry into their stale packet of chips and re-read a trashy gossip magazine for the 20th time. Others may just try and catch up on their sleep, while jumping at every random noise that echoed around the empty lounge.
Or you could be this guy. And film a music video on your phone.
Richard Dunn decided to channel his inner Celine Dion after he became stuck overnight at Las Vegas’ McCarran International Airport. With nothing else to do, Richard proceeded to film an entire music video in the empty airport, lip synching Dion’s cover of the power ballad ‘All By Myself,’ in a variety of amusing situations.
Take a look at the video below.
In an interview, Dunn said he’d been voluntarily bumped from two Delta flights in exchange for vouchers and a seat on the next flight, which left at 6 a.m. Figuring he didn’t have enough time to go to a hotel, he decided to film the hilarious music video.
For the more technical shots, Dunn said he persuaded a person at the ticket counter to give him a roll of luggage tape before she left for the night.
Taping his iPhone to a wheel chair that had a tall pole on the back of it, Dunn achieved all the moving shots by placing the chair on various moving walkways, escalators and other surfaces, then later edited the footage at home.
We’re now waiting for the day Mr. Dunn gets stranded on a boat dock, and covers ‘My Heart Will Go On.’
