Eric 'Mean' Melin's last-minute flight to Finland paid off. Melin won the 2013 Air Guitar World Championships in Oulu, Finland. 

Melin tied fellow American Doug "The Thunder" Stroock in the second round, leading to an "air off" playoff to Weezer's Hash Pipe. Melin dominated, winning the air-off and the "Flying Finn" guitar.

Earlier this week, Melin flew to Finland to compete in a dark horse competition, which he won.

Melin went second in the World Championships and led for most of the first round. His score of 17.1 was good enough for third place heading into the second round. A second-round score of 17.1 tied him for first place with Stroock. 

Congrats, Melin.
