Celine Dion was so touched by a lonely, stranded airport passenger’s hilarious video cover of her song All By Myself that she sent out a public video invite to him to hang out with her.
Richard Dunn instantly became an internet sensation after posting a video he shot with his iPhone of him lip syncing to Dion’s 1996 song inside a completely empty McCarran Airport in Las Vegas.
Dunn impressed Dion so much that she went out of her way to offer him free tickets to her Caesar’s Palace show, as well as personal companionship and the opportunity to even ‘use [her] bathroom.’
And as for those wondering how he managed to shoot the music video all by himself, here is his explanation:
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!
