A woman’s video showing her groovin’ down with workers and fliers after getting stuck overnight at Charlotte Douglas International Airport has gone viral.
“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!!!!” Mahshid Mazooji says in the caption to her video. “Oh, and I made some really great friends along the way! Thank you for dancing your troubles away with me!!! :)”
Mazooji, airport workers and other fliers dance in the two-minute video to Lionel Richie’s 1983 hit song, “All Night Long.” She titled her video, “All Night Long at the Airport.” Mazooji also does a moonwalk that would make Michael Jackson proud.
