  • ""Air guitar nation follows a group of young, born-to-rock motorheads, dudes, and real life Waynes and Garths all the way from the East Coast Air Guitar Championships in New York City to Finland, where otherwise normal men and women transform into 11 year olds on their first tequila shot to compete in the World Air Guitar Championships"--Container."@en
  • "If punk helped democratize music by prizing energy over virtuosity--then air guitar takes it even further, removing musicianship and playing altogether. The world championships began in 1996, and the contest has been a part of the Oulu Music Video Festival in Oulu, Finland since. The U.S. Air Guitar Championship began in 2003, with two regional competitions, in New York and Los Angeles, with the finals in LA. The film follows the fierce competition between David "C-Diddy" Jung, (who rocks a Hello Kitty breastplate) and Dan "Björn Türoque" Crane, eternal challenger and perennial runner-up. After the US championship, they move on to Finland, where they are the first Americans ever to compete. The Europeans have several years head start, take air guitar very seriously, and really know how to thrash. Air guitar is performance art for those who never lost touch with their inner child. This documentary is a lovingly hilarious portrait of a bizarre pastime, bearing the message that people are people no matter where you find them."@en
