Eric ‘Mean’ Melin finishes second in U.S. Air Guitar national finals, heads to Finland

Eric “Mean” Melin took second in U.S. Air Guitar’s national championship Saturday night in Los Angeles. Melin fell one-tenth of a point short of Lt. Facemelter in the finals. (Take a look back at Melin’s L.A. adventure in this slideshow via the LA Weekly.) But this doesn’t mark the end of Melin’s air-guitar journey.

In a blog post on his Scene Stealers movie site, Melin writes that he’s bought a flight to Oulu, Finland, so he can compete in the dark horse competition – a last ditch effort to get into the Air Guitar World Championships.

Melin leaves Tuesday. As you can imagine, a last-minute flight to Finland is pretty pricey. So Melin is selling Mean Melin T-shirts to help pay for the trip. If you’re feeling generous, you can click this link to donate to Melin’s air-guitar dream.
