Celine Dion has made historic amounts of money singing in Vegas, but a man named Richard Dunn may have just outdone that achievement. Dunn was stuck overnight in Vegas' McCarran Airport, but instead of catching some sleep he decided to film himself moping around the terminal while singing Dion's "All By Myself." We are all the better for it, because the video is hilarious.

Dunn was basically alone, so he employed some canny tricks to execute this artistic masterpiece: taping his iPhone to the top of his luggage, using escalators for epic overhead framing, and ingeniously using moving walkways for those brilliant dolly shots. Enjoy.
