Richard Dunn, aka Lonely Airport Guy, has found a friend in superstar Celine Dion after his video lip-syncing her hit "All By Myself" went viral. Dunn released the video last Sunday, which he made while killing time on a layover in Las Vegas's barren McCarran International Airport.

Dion, who is currently on tour at The Colosseum at Caesars Palace, thought Dunn's parody was "hilarious." She responded by inviting Dunn to hang out with her. “Next time you’re stuck all by yourself at Las Vegas airport, for hours and hours, please be my guest at my show,” she said in a video released to TMZ.

Though the comical video might suggest otherwise, Dunn's Dion fandom is unironic. He told USA Today that the song has been a "guilty pleasure" of his and the singer's music has "soothed a broken heart or two in my life."
