Celine Dion responds to 'All By Myself' airport viral video: 'Hilarious and very touching'

The next time viral video star Richard Dunn is all by himself at Las Vegas' McCarran Airport, he'll have someone in town he can turn to: Celine Dion.

Dunn had filmed himself during an overnight layover in the airport lip-synching to Dion's cover of "All by Myself," and the video went viral earlier this week. On Thursday he got a video response from the Canadian chanteuse.

"I have to say that the video was hilarious and very touching. I loved it," Dion says in the clip, which already has nearly 150,000 hits on YouTube (Dunn's video has 12.1 million plays on Vimeo so far, so she has some catching up to do).

"But next time, you know, you're stuck all by yourself at Las Vegas airport for hours and hours, please be my guest at my show," she continued. "And by the way, Richard, you're more than welcome to use my bathroom."

A generous offer to be sure, and he'll have lots of time to cash it in: Dion is slated to continue her residency at Caesar's Palace until 2019.
