Dunn works as a lighting designer for corporate entertainment, according to CBC News.

According to CBC News, Dunn was offered vouchers to be bumped off two consecutive Delta Air Lines flights leaving him “all by himself”until 6 a.m. the next day.

“I thought, well I don’t have enough time to go to a hotel so what do I do? I’ve got my phone and an empty movie set, let’s see what trouble I can get into,” Dunn said.

Dunn Googled songs about being alone and found “All By Myself.” He waited until about 2 a.m. and then went to work.

He asked an airport mechanic for some tape and used it to secure his iPhone to a ruler. He then sandwiched the pole between his luggage bags and took his “tripod” around the terminal to film the various shots.

The video has been watched over two million times on Vimeo.
