Today at Travel Freak we came across a music video that was mentioned on the Las Vegas Review-Journal and has gone viral on the internet. Picture this: you’re expecting to catch a flight out of the Las Vegas’ McCarran International Airport but instead you have been bumped off two consecutive Delta Airline flights. Of course you are upset and angry but what do you do about it? Richard Dunn found himself in the same scenario and decided the best use of his time was to create an epic music video.
The lighting designer from Georgia who I’m sure was feeling very much alone in the deserted airport at 2 AM decided to channel that emotion into recreating a music video for the hauntingly beautiful Celine Dion cover of “All By Myself.” The video has been viewed over 4 million times and it features Dunn lip-syncing along with the goddess herself. My favorite part of the music video may be when he reaches for the outstretched arm of the sign for the women’s restroom or when he is sitting at the Delta Airline help phone, which many have referred to it as an oxymoron.
The process of filming the video was little more complex then you would imagine but of course if I was in that situation I would have a hard time doing anything besides curling up into a ball and cursing the fates. Dunn persuaded a woman behind a ticket counter to give him a roll of luggage tape which he then used to tape his phone to the pole of a wheel chair to get some of his shots. Now that is what I call using your resources wisely. Some of the other shots in his video are a result of using an extended handle on his computer bag. In order to get some different angles he would tuck some of his belongings under the bag and success! He now has an epic music video. If that creativity does not impress you then I don’t know what will.
What is your favorite part about Dunn’s music video?
