    Just saw this and though it was pretty funny. Imagine being all alone at LAS running around acting like a fool and not giving a shit.

    This is how he said he did it:

    "I had a person behind a ticket counter give me a roll of luggage tape before she left. I then used a wheel chair 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!"

    Very clever and well done!

    But I must say if I'm facing a night in the airport then I'm choosing to catch a cab and go back to the strip to get my gamble on.

    Very funny and creative.
    Wonder how many times the guards came to check up on him.

    I'm wondering how many guys were watching the security cameras and thinking, "what the fuck is this guy doing!"

    If he had a Samsung Galaxy he could have made an entire movie, instead of a 5 minute video. :wink2:

    Great video..Just my guess..

    This guy is a professional actor either theater or behind camera..Also, since the video was not shot in a single take, it takes a lots of takes, synchronization to music and editing..More than a nights work

    That was good... but had me thinking just how freakin' bored I would be stuck in an airport overnight, especially in Las Vegas. I would have taken a cab back to The Strip or even just somewhere like Hard Rock or found a cheap hotel to stay at.

    Great video but I dont understand why he didnt just take a cab some place. Its Vegas after all and the fun is only minutes away.

    I got trapped at the airport in sacramento years ago like that but that place rolls up at 9pm so there was really nothing to do. I ended up helping the cleaning guy buff the floors with this super gas powered buffer.
