Airports are pretty lonely places, and there’s only one way to get rid of loneliness: by singing power ballads.

When a man named Richard Dunn found himself stranded in Las Vegas at McCarran international airport, he decided to do just that. He recorded himself with his iPhone as he wandered throughout the empty airport, all while lip-synching  Celine Dion’s “All By Myself.” Following the tune of the song, Dunn occasionally embraces his freedom, twirling in place, before collapsing into crushing, airport-induced despair.

The stunt recalls a video from 2011, in which photographer Joe Ayala and friend Larry Chen were stranded at the Dallas Fort-Worth airport and made the best of their own layover, including raiding a nearby bar for some free drinks. But their antics didn’t go over especially well with airport security. It’s hard to imagine anyone getting mad at Dunn — when has a little Celine Dion ever hurt anyone?
