DALLAS, TX (WBRC) -

A couple of Birmingham men are finding internet fame after their travel delay led to a viral video.

After missing a connecting flight back home, Ben Borrello and Zach Searcy were stuck for nine hours at a Dallas airport before catching the next available flight.

So while waiting in the airport overnight, they made a video: 9 Ways to Pass Time in an Airport.

The video description says the duo decided to make the most of their delay by doing things they had "always dreamed of doing in an airport."

A few things that made the list: wheelchair races, airport sledding, sleeping in new places and even some Air Train gymnastics.

"We debated adding music to this but felt it'd make this airport actually seem lively at night and it isn't our job to deceive you all," the video description says.

The video has now been seen more than 160,000 times on YouTube and has been featured on multiple websites including Yahoo Travel.
