While most people were probably calling their loved ones to complain about an unexpected overnight layover at the Las Vegas McCarran Airport recently, a Georgia-based lighting designer was planning to wow the internet with a music video for Celine Dion’s “All By Myself.”
Richard Dunn took advantage of the empty airport and his handy-dandy iPhone to create a fitting parody for the 1996 song, in which he managed to film himself all by himself, all by himself.
“I had a person behind a ticket counter give me a roll of luggage tape before she left. I then used a wheelchair 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,” Dunn wrote on his Vimeo page. “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!”
The testament to the creative capabilities of a smart phone began going viral on Monday after being discovered, and has amassed nearly 4 million views since.
Watch what happened when Dunn got bored (above), and make sure to wait for his “Flashdance” moment.
