Malcolm Gladwell, author of Blink and The Tipping Point says, "Björn Türoque is so good that people with real guitars now have contests to see who can do the best imitation of his air guitar imitation."

No joke.

bjornconan.jpgAnd today he's all ours. Dan Crane, aka Björn Türoque, air guitar phenomenon and star of Air Guitar Nation is in the blog and giving away not one, but two prizes to two lucky readers. In my interview with him he'll tell you that one of the most important things you need if you want to be a successful air guitarist is a great stage-name, like Björn Türoque for instance.

So let's have "˜em! Enter as many times as you like, so long as each of your spectacularly creative stage-names is in a separate comment. Dan will pick his two favorites and one of you will get a copy of the movie Air Guitar Nation on DVD and the other a copy of his book To Air is Human.

Check out the Air Guitar Nation intro below and watch Björn unleash the full power of his airness. Then check out the exclusive mental_floss interview.
