Stranded Passenger Films 'All By Myself' Video in Las Vegas Airport

Celine Dion performs at the German television game show 'Wetten das...?' (Wanna bet...?) in Halle, Germany on November 9, 2013.   

For most, an overnight stay in an airport is a dreadful experience. However, Delta Airlines passenger Richard Dunn made the best of his situation by creating a unique, lip-sync video to Celine Dion’s cover of "All By Myself."

Dunn, who had a last minute layover in Las Vegas on his way back to Moncton, Canada,  decided that he didn’t have enough time to go to a hotel. In an interview with CBC News, Dunn said “I’ve got my phone and an empty movie set, let’s see what trouble I can get into.”

The video shows Dunn in various parts of an empty McCarran Airport, lip-synching the words and even performing homage to the 1983 movie, "Flashdance." To capture these shots, Dunn used luggage tape to attach his iPhone to a wheelchair.  While the video shows an empty airport, Dunn said that there were cleaning crews there giving him strange looks.

When Dunn finally got home, he edited the video, with his wife looking on. While she humored him, Dunn said it “wasn't until the next morning that [they] realized that this may actually be funny.” Since uploading the video to Vimeo, it has gone viral, garnering more than 4.2 million views.
