We’re not sure what you do when you’re stranded at an airport, but we usually just try and find a place to sleep that won’t cause a pinched nerve. But for Richard Dunn, such slothfulness simply will not do. He opted to turn a night in a Las Vegas airport into a moving, heart-wrenching music video.
“What do you do when you’re stuck at the Las Vegas airport overnight? Shoot a music video on your iPhone. That’s what,” says Dunn in the clip, which has him lip-syncing to Celine Dion‘s 1996 rendition of All by Myself as he wanders despondently around McCarran International Airport.
Explaining how he made the clip, Dunn wrote on his Vimeo page, “I had a person behind a ticket counter give me a roll of luggage tape before she left. I 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,” he added. “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.”
