Shaggy bearded "Nordic Thunder" has outmimed his American compatriot "Airistotle" at playing the air guitar to become this year's world champion in northern Finland.
This month, Finns are challenging the Olympic Games for the limelight — with world competitions in air guitar, wife-carrying and mobile-phone throwing. And don't forget swamp soccer, as if you could.
"When I first started playing air guitar competitively, I entered because I wanted to be the best at doing something ridiculous," he wrote. "Two air-guitar-related surgeries and a two-week tour of Finland later, I have discovered that air guitar is indeed ridiculous."
Last year's silver medalist and U.S. air-guitar champion Justin Howard, known by his stage name Nordic Thunder, explained the competition's appeal on the event's blog.
