Stuck in airport for 14 hrs, man makes music video with iPhone

Richard DunnRichard Dunn’s flight was canceled due to weather, his next flight scheduled for 14 hours later.

So, stuck in Las Vegas airport and alone, Dunn made ingenious use of his waiting time by making a music video of himself lip-synching to Celine Dion’s “All By Myself.”

The result is hilarious. LOL

In an interview with the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation, Dunn said he volunteered to be bumped from two Delta flights for travel vouchers, opting for a 6 a.m. flight the following morning.

“I thought, ‘Well, I don’t have enough time to go to a hotel so what do I do? I’ve got my phone and an empty movie set, let’s see what trouble I can get into,'” he explained.

For some of the technically advanced 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.

“I then used a wheelchair that had a tall pole on the back of it and taped my iPhone to that,” he wrote in a comment on his Vimeo page. Dunn achieved the moving shots by placing the chair on various moving walkways, escalators, etc., then edited it all together with Final Cut Pro.

After going viral, drawing hundreds of thousands of views, the video even drew a response from Celine Dion herself:

  1. we should have more music videos like this one! 🙂

  2. I loved it, a few years back, we were stuck there over night for about 8 hours or so. It was exactly like this. Just an empty tomb, no food, nothing. He used his time well.
