‘The Terminal’ in real life: One man’s ode to being stuck overnight at an airport

Jun 11, 2014, 3:50 AM | Updated: 3:50 am

One man faced a lonely, long night at a Las Vegas airport waiting for his next flight. So what did he do with the time? He took his iPhone and started shooting video.

The video starts out as a somber look at slumbering terminals, but about a minute into it, Richard Dunn starts lip syncing to “All By Myself,” as sung by Celine Dion — not the original by Eric Carmen — and it turns into a melancholy, melodramatic music video.

That’s also the same point where the clip starts to turn away from conjuring up any thoughts of Tom Hanks in “The Terminal.”

It’s a pretty funny affair, even though it does get a little weird near the end. For example, one recurring shot has him sitting at the entrance to a women’s restroom. Yes, the airport is literally that empty that he can sit there with no recourse.

I’d personally prefer to sleep while waiting for my next flight, but this works, too.
