Staten Island Man Crowned “Air Guitar” World Champion in Finland

Staten Island man, Matt “Airistotle” Burns, was crowned world air guitar champion after winning the annual event in Oulu, northern Finland, on Friday.

Burns had this to say:

Burns, or Airistotle, was runner-up in 2012, 2014 and 2015. Last year he lost first place to the Russian competitor, Kereel “Your Daddy” Blumenkrants. He came back this year to narrowly beat the Russian 34,8 – 35,7.

Pardon? What IS an Air Guitar competition? Why, it’s a competition where contestants are judged on their ability to pretend to strum rock or heavy-metal electric solos. Still confused? Well take a look at the winning performance from our very own NYC world champion.
