Las Vegas - Being stranded in an airport overnight when your flight gets delayed pretty much sucks!

Especially when you're all alone. 

Or does it?

Richard Dunn, a 43-year-old traveller who recently had to spend the night in Las Vegas' McCarran Airport practically by himself, showed the world that it really doesn't have to be that bad when you have a phone, some creativity... and know a classic song off by heart. 

Mail Online reports that - to while away the time - he filmed a hilarious and ingenious music video lip-syncing Celine Dion's 1996 hit, 'All by myself.' As one does.

Apparently the married lighting designer was on his way home from a work trip in Las Vegas last Friday when he was offered $900 in vouchers to skip two consecutive Delta Airlines flights.

While he could probably have slipped out and hit the famous Las Vegas strip, he decided to have some fun of his own.

And, in the process found himself being catapulted to internet fame, as the surprisingly sleek video has all but gone viral after being posted on Vimeo

According to Gawker, Dunn got a roll of luggage tape from a check in assistant and used it to secure his phone to various structures and props - including escalators, moving walkways and wheel chairs - to get the best possible shots. 

Check out the video below... it's pretty damn amazing and amusing!
