Are you ready to rock? A Japanese man was. He out-"played" challengers to win the Air Guitar World Championship for the second consecutive year at a contest in northern Finland.
Yahoo reports that Ochi Yosuke received the highest score from a panel of judges in the final, on Friday at the Teatria rock club in Oulu, near the Arctic Circle.
He not only gets the glory, but he received a custom-made Flying Finn electric guitar worth an estimated $3,400.
They say that the talent on display was variable at best. The big surprise of the qualifying round was Hilkka "Gore Kitty" Suvanto, who had scored the lowest points ever in that round twice before, but this time achieved a perfect six from many of the judges.
Ochi who impressed the judges the most in the final showdown, ahead of Guillaume "Moche Pitt" de Tonquedec of France, and Austria's Max "Herr Jaquelin" Heller.
"It's great. We've seen all the nations, united nations, 'rocking on the free world' and that's good, that's great," de Tonquedec said.
American Andrew "William Ocean" Litz, was one of the favorites, finishing 11th, whose act ends in a spectacular backflip onto an empty beer can.
Keep on rocking and one day you too can claim the glory that is "Air Guitar Champion."
