We've all been caught playing air guitar at least once in our lives. It's a little embarrassing and you try to go through the rest of the day like nothing ever happened. Bringing up the incident would be heresy. For those unashamed, there's actually a worldwide competition for air guitarists to duke it out!

In the early 1980s, metalheads would bring cardboard cut-outs of guitars to clubs and bars for a little fun competition eased along by adult beverages. Fast forward over 30 years and you've got people competing in air guitar competitions. Here, the world champion of 2009 struts his stuff to the Sweatmasters' 'Animal' decked out in gold spandex and Matt Pike's favorite shirt. Think you've got what it takes to beat this animal!?
