We’ve all dreamed of it. What would we do if we had an entire shopping mall, office building, or airport terminal to ourselves? The latter recently became a reality for Joe Ayala and Larry Chen.The two were stranded overnight in an empty terminal at Dallas Fort Worth International Airport after their connecting flight was cancelled. Rather than read or catch a few Z’s, the pair decided to have some fun with Ayala’s camera.

A video titled “Stuck” was posted to Vimeo on Monday night. In it, the pair are shown wheelchair racing, PA system beatboxing, and even sneaking a beer from a closed airport bar.

While some find humour in the hijinx, others are raising major security concerns. Though both cleared a TSA checkpoint to get into the terminal, their overnight party seemed to go completely unnoticed by airport security.

Watch the video here.
