(RNN) - That's one way to kill time on a layover.

Richard Dunn has become a viral hit for a video he made during an overnight stay at Las Vegas' McCarran International Airport and posted to Vimeo.

Rather than sleep, read or drop his life savings into a bunch of slot machines, he used the time alone to make a lip-synching cover to Celine Dion's version of the song All By Myself.

"I had a person behind a ticket counter give me a roll of luggage tape before she left," he wrote on the video's comments section. "I then used a wheelchair 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!"

His faux-emotional (faux-motional?) antics include slumping down in front of an oversized women's restroom sign and recreating the water scene from Flashdance.

He wrote that he put it together using editing software, which helped give it a more professional look. His masterpiece struck a chord with people on the site.

"This is so good and so impressive!" Margie Strange wrote. "Way to take what could have been the most annoying night and turn it into creative genius."

The video has been viewed 4 million-plus times since it was posted Monday. Dunn appeared surprised at the positive feedback.

"I had no idea it would turn into this," Dunn wrote. "Absolutely crazy."
