LAS VEGAS — InfoComm’s 2014 exhibit halls open June 18-20, overlapping with the Electric Daisy Carnival (June 20-22). Needless to say, Las Vegas’ McCarran Airport and most Las Vegas hotels will be jam-packed this week. All the more reason to opt against accepting a $400 voucher for an overbooked flight — which led to LD Richard Dunn getting bumped from a subsequent flight back to his home in the Atlanta area.

Richard Dunn in McCarran AirportOpting against Delta’s offer for a free place to stay, Dunn found himself wandering the deserted airport from 2 a.m. to 5 a.m., looking for something to do. He saw a Celine poster, and its reference to the song, “All By Myself” kindled an idea.

The creative “selfie” video of Dunn lip-synching Celine’s song went viral, scoring more than 11 million hits, and even prompted a response from Celine herself, who offered the LD tickets to her show at Caesars Colosseum the next time he’s in town.
