Man Stuck Alone in Airport Films Crazy Celine Dion Music Video (WATCH)

Richard Dunn had a brilliant idea when he found out he'd be stuck at McCarran Airport in Las Vegas until 6 a.m. Play the slot machines until he struck it rich? Nope. The lighting designer grabbed his iPhone instead and filmed an AMAZING music video of Celine Dion's song "All By Myself." Travelers: you now have your unofficial theme song and music video and it's epic!

Let's face it: airport layovers are just the worst. You're stuck in what feels like purgatory for hours on end, with little to do but stuff your face with fast food or read the same magazines over and over again. And if you've ever found yourself stranded at an airport overnight, when even the Starbucks shuts down for a few hours, things can get really lonely -- spooky, even.

Dunn isn't the first to get the idea to film something funny while he's bored out of his mind at an airport, but his video is unique because it looks pretty darn professional, which may have something to do with why it has quickly gone viral. And the maudlin song he selected perfectly captures the experience of being trapped in an isolated place, doesn't it?

On his Vimeo page, Dunn explains how he managed to capture these shots:

I had a person behind a ticket counter give me a roll of luggage tape before she left. I then used a wheel chair that had a tall pole on the back of it and taped my iPhone to that. Then I would put it on the moving walkway for a dolly shot. I also used the extended handle on my computer bag and taped the iPhone to my handle. I would tuck different stuff under the bag to get the right angle. For the escalator shot I had to sprint up the steps after I got my shot so the computer bag didn't hit the top and fall back down. Quite fun!

Pretty impressive. Check it out and let us know what you think:
