Real is Boring

Germany has joined a long list of countries in forming an Air Guitar Federation in hopes of winning the Air Guitar World Championship. The contest, which was originally created as filler for the Oulu Music Video Festival in Finland, will bring together independent entrants and winners from national contests in Germany, Finland, Ireland, France, the United Arab Emirates, New Zealand, the Netherlands, Belgium, Austria, France, Norway, Australia, and the U.S. for the 9th annual finals in Kuusisaari on Aug. 27. Participants can “play” either acoustic or electric guitar and the winner walks away with an actual “Flying Finn” guitar worth 2,500 euros ($3,056.56 U.S.).
