What do you get when you combine two professional photographers, $30,000 worth of camera equipment and a long night stranded at the airport?
A hilarious video that has officials at Dallas-Fort Worth Airport fuming over security.
When Joe Ayala and Larry Chen realized their flight out of DFW was canceled recently, they decided to make the most of it. So they brought out their professional camera equipment and starting goofing off: racing wheelchairs, wet-towel fighting in the bathroom and acting like little kids on the escalators. But it's the scenes that show them messing with a gate's computer and "stealing" a beer from a restaurant that have raised security concerns.
An airport spokesman said security agents saw the filmmakers at the airport, but since they were presenting "no threat to themselves, to others or to flight safety, and were causing no damage, there was no imperative to curtail their activities.”
But in such a sensitive setting, should security guards have let the filmmakers goof off? What does their carte blanche access of the airport say about security within the terminal? And when do I get a chance to race wheelchairs?
