Justin Howard, a.k.a. Nordic Thunder, wins world air guitar championships
"Pain is temporary, air guitar is forever."
So said Justin "Nordic Thunder" Howard after his barefoot performance brought on some blood at the Air Guitar World Championships in Finland.
Howard won the 2012 competition, beating fellow American Matt "Airistotle" Burns by more than two points.
Nordic Thunder wows the crowd.
