See a North Carolina airport become the backdrop for an impromptu Lionel Richie masterpiece.
What do you when you’re stranded at the airport all night? Make a dance video, of course. That’s exactly what Mahshid Mazooji decided to when she found herself stuck at Charlotte Douglas International Airport all night. “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!!!!” Mazooji wrote in the caption describing her viral YouTube video “Oh, and I made some really great friends along the way! Thank you for dancing your troubles away with me!!! :)”

With guest appearances from airport personnel, Starbucks’ employees, and fellow travelers, Mazooji and her crew moonwalk, shimmy and shake through baggage claim, escalators, waiting areas, and beyond. Watch below:
Talk about a good reminder to make the best of what’s around next time you’re stuck in a stressful situation. Oh, and that blasting a classic 80s anthem never hurts, either.
