Nordic Thunder named US air guitar champ

ABC7 doesn't mean to brag, but maybe we had something to do with the fact that Chicago's own Nordic Thunder air guitarist is the 2011 national champion!

Nordic Thunder faced off another player, Shreddy Mercury from Brooklyn, on the ABC7 News morning show Saturday. Viewers voted on Facebook indicating Shreddy was better.

But what really matters is that Nordic Thunder won the national competition, which took place in Chicago Saturday night.

He'll now head to Finland for the world championship.
