An American has won the 2013 Air Guitar World Championships, which took place in Oulu, Finland, over the weekend. Eric "Mean Melin" Melin bested the competition, including fellow American Doug "The Thunder" Stroock in the final matchup.
Air Guitar World Championships 2013 was a tight twist to two Dark Horses. Thursday's victorious Eric "Mean Melin" Melin (US) also nailed both of his performances in the Friday's World Final - after being challenged by his countryman, Doug "The Thunder" Stroock. As a result, The Thunder's oozingly sexual air guitar moves couldn't compete with Mean Melin's straight-forward rock charisma: the Kansas-based Dave Grohl lookalike is inevidably going home with the World Title of Air Guitar and hand-made Flying Finn electric guitar.
