We Americans dominate in many things, but air guitar is a prized accomplishment.

He goes by the name of Thunder…Nordic Thunder.

American Air Guitar champion Justin “Nordic Thunder” Howard, has assumed the top spot as the world’s best Air Guitar player. He gained this title after rightfully winning the 17th Air Guitar World Championship final at Rotuaari Square in Oulu, Northern Finland, Friday August 24th.

The grizzly faced “Nordic Thunder” from Chi-town, outplayed his American opponent Matt “Aristotle” Burns  from New York, according to Huffingtonpost. This international contest, aka the best contest that exists, has been held in Oulu since 1996. Wonder what the music selection was then? Probably the same if it’s a Jack tune.

Among the Air Guitar World Championship, additional annual events include a cellphone throwing contest, swamp football, and last but not least, wife carrying. All you deadbeat high school drop-outs finally have a second chance at discovering your purpose on this planet Earth. What are you waiting for?
