Law student Katie Gould recently found herself stuck at Atlanta's Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport after missing her flight to Milwaukee.
“I actually missed my flight because security was so long,” Gould told Travel + Leisure. “I’m used to Hartsfield-Jackson security being busy, but this was more than usual for the time of day. They had less TSA agents than they normally do, so I assumed the shutdown had something to do with it.”
By Monday morning, her video had more than 56,000 retweets and 357,000 likes.
The official Twitter account for Hall & Oates replied, saying, “Impressive you can dance that long!”
“They’re so going to use this against you when you’re a freshman congresswoman in the future 😂,” one Twitter user joked, referencing the time a Twitter user tried to embarrass new congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez by posting a video of her dancing.
“If anything I hope it helps my case,” Gould replied.
Gould told Travel + Leisure that she was happy the video cheered people up.
“I was pretty frustrated that whole day with missing my flight, but doing something fun and silly really helped remind me not to take life too seriously,” she said.
