Stuck at the airport overnight? Most people’s idea of a nightmare. But Richard Dunn decided he could make the best of it, and put together a video. An amazing video. You see, Las Vegas McCarran International Airport shuts down overnight. There are no flights, and no people in the airport in the middle of the night. So what’s a guy to do?

Here’s what he said on his Vimeo page, clarifying that he really did do it all by himself:

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!

Existential desolation is one thing, but for our money, he should’ve taken the five minute cab ride out to the Las Vegas strip – even with no money, it’s extraordinary people watching. Or play the 1c slots in the airport, which seemingly are everywhere.

What would you do?
