Yay America – Chicago Native Crowned World Air Guitar Champ [VIDEO]

Admit it, when no one is around, you’ve jammed on the air guitar.

I proudly admit to the fact that I’ve done it on numerous occasions. Sometimes in the hallways of the station, sometimes in the studio, and in front of the mirror more times than I can count. I’m particularly fond of rocking it out on the steering wheel while blasting the stereo in my truck.

The 17th annual Air Guitar World Championships were held in Oulu, Finland recently with Justin “Nordic Thunder” Howard from Chicago beating out fellow American rock-god wannabe, New York Native, Matt “Airistotle” Burns to take home the crown (which may be as imaginary as the guitar he was “playing”).

Mr. Nordic Thunder (???) beat out 17 other finalists from around the world dressed as what I can only describe as the world’s scrawniest Viking. Check out his title-winning performance in the video below which netted him an actual guitar as the grand prize.
