A woman stranded at Charlotte Douglas International Airport after missing her connecting flight decided to make the most of her overnight airport experience by dancing the night away. Mahshid Mazooji has since gone viral, racking up nearly 1million YouTube views for her video showing her dancing by herself and with employees.
She wrote on YouTube, ‘I missed my connecting flight in Charlotte, and I didn’t want to sit in anger all night long, so instead I did what makes me happiest…DANCE!!!! ‘Oh, and I made some really great friends along the way! Thank you for dancing your troubles away with me!!! :)’ The video is edited to Lionel Richie’s hit 1983 single ‘All Night Long’.
It makes extensive use of the cross-dissolve editing tool, cutting between Mazooji dancing with airport staff, Starbucks employees and herself. The assembled humans smile and laugh as they dance the night away.
At one point, Mazooji does a moonwalk. Charlotte’s airport tweeted the video and wrote: ‘Kudos to Ms. Mahshid Mazooji for turning a tough experience at #CLT into a positive one.’
