Richard Dunn has become an internet sensation with his video using a Celine Dion song, and the singer was so impressed she invited him back to Vegas to see her.
Richard Dunn, the man who became the latest viral internet star, has inspired the muse for his video. Dunn was stuck overnight at McCarran International Airport in Las Vegas and decided to use his time wisely. He recorded a video of himself lip-syncing “All By Myself” by Celine Dion in different areas of the airport, and apparently Dion has become a big fan of his.
“The video was hilarious and touching. I loved it,” Dion said in a video recorded for Dunn.
Dunn’s video has been making the rounds online, and it received more than 1 million views the day after it was posted. In one hilarious moment, he even tries to grab the hand of the women’s bathroom symbol.
Dion released her response to the video on YouTube for all her fans to see, but it was a message directed to Dunn for his video genius. She also offered him an invitation to meet her next time he is in town.
“But next time you’re stuck all by yourself, at Las Vegas airport for hours and hours and hours, please be my guest at my show,” she said. “And by the way, Richard, you’re more than welcome to use my bathroom. So, I hope to see you soon.”
