A new U.S. Air Guitar champion was crowned last night in New York City to go to Oulu, Finland, and slay the world's best air guitarists with sexy. And the new champ has ties to the Kansas City area.
Romeo Dance Cheetah (Matt Cornelison) sexified last night's championship and claimed the crown. RDC originally hails from Gladstone but now calls Chicago home.
Kansas City's reigning air guitar champion, Eric
"Mean" Melin, made a strong showing, shredding Slayer's "Angel
of Death," and making the second round of the competition despite
receiving no love from judge and Daily Show correspondent Jason
"You sir are living proof of what happens in Vegas,
stays in Vegas,"
Jones told Melin, who won
the Las Vegas regional. "Go home, 5.4."
The crowd booed,
showered Jones with drinks and chanted "asshole." See the fallout here
And behold, the champion.
As for the future of Mean Melin, I asked him if he'd do it all again
next year. He wrote back, simply, "yes."
