LAS VEGAS, June 10 (UPI) -- A man waiting overnight in Las Vegas' McCarran Airport recorded a cell phone video of himself lip-syncing Celine Dion's 1996 single "All By Myself" while he waited alone for his flight.

Using just his smartphone, a wheelchair and water bottle, Richard Dunn spent the evening shooting himself lip-syncing the ballad around various locations of the nearly deserted airport with no help from other would-be passengers.

"I had a person behind a ticket counter give me a roll of luggage tape before she left," Dunn said on his Vimeo page.

"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. 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."

Not content with a single dated pop-culture reference, about four-and-a-half minutes into the video Dunn uses a water bottle to recreate the iconic waterfall silhouette shot from the 1983 film Flashdance.

Uploaded earlier today, the video already has nearly 500,000 views.
