Air Guitar World Champion Eric ‘Mean’ Melin Is an American Hero for the Ages

Eric ‘Mean’ Melin plays a pretty mean air guitar.

The American man won the air guitar world championship in Finland last week, bringing the coveted title stateside.

Melin, who looks eerily like Dave Grohl of the Foo Fighters, had quite the journey en route to his victory. First, he won a contest the night before just to make the field. Then, he was ordered to go second among all the competitors, which traditionally means a low scores since the judges aren’t whipped into a frenzy yet.

Then, to top off his ‘Rudy’-like fairy tale, he won a playoff against fellow American Doug Stroock.

After his victory, Melin was still high in the air – this time on cloud nine. He said, “This is insane. It’s so amazing. This is the best night in my life.”
