I’ve never found myself in the unenviable position of being stranded in an airport overnight. If I do ever find myself stuck like that in the future, I’m not sure what I would do. Knowing me, I’d probably want to sleep it off, though if I was stuck there due to missing a connecting flight, I bet I’d spend a couple hours being steamed that I’d missed my connection first.
YouTuber Mahshid Mazooji found herself in that unfortunate situation recently when she missed her connection in Charlotte. Sounds like she definitely was angry about that, but unlike what I would likely have done, she decided to do something to make her a little more cheerful, and according to the video’s description, nothing makes her happier than dancing. So she brought her camera (probably a phone?) around the airport and got clips of herself dancing with as many other people at the airport as she could. Airport staff, Starbucks baristas, other weary travelers… Nobody was safe. And it made for a pretty fun video.
And what better soundtrack for an All Night Long dance party than Lionel Richie‘s classic All Night Long (All Night)? And was anyone else impressed by her moonwalking ability? I kinda wonder if that was one of the ways she spent the time – learning to moonwalk – or if she already had that talent.
And I’d be lying if I said that Starbucks barista didn’t remind me a little bit of the bartender from the video for another famous 80’s song…
You remember that guy, don’t you? I mean… How could you forget?
Anyway, I know what I’ll be doing if I ever find myself stuck in an airport overnight – I’m gonna make a bomb music video!
