Congratulations to Chicagoan Justin Howard ("Nordic Thunder") who narrowly beat New Yorker Matt Burns ("Airistotle") to win the World Air Guitar Championships in Oulu, Finland.
You can watch footage from the final below - but not before you've clicked through possibly the most awesome picture slideshow ever created on Huffington Post UK Comedy. Namely, 14 photos of grown men (and women) miming guitar playing.
It's all a little bit Wayne's World-meets-Spinal Tap-meets-The Darkness. In other words: it totally rocks. Take it away, guys!
