Any traveler knows the gut-wrenching feeling of spriting for your connecting flight only to find it gone from your gate. When travelers and YouTubers Zach and Ben (also known as BennyZProductions) discovered they’d missed a connection in Dallas—the last flight out for the night—they turned lemons into lemonade with a video of their exploits.

The video purports to showcase nine ways to prevent boredom, but it plays more like “9 Ways to Potentially Injure Yourself in the Airport.”

Wheelchair races, sliding down escalators, and gymnastics on a moving AirTrain look like recipes for disaster, and the guys are lucky they made it to their rescheduled flight without a trip to the airport medic. Wouldn’t they have been a lot safer if they just recorded a catchy music video instead?
