For some people, there aren’t many things that are more fun than playing air guitar along to their favourite tracks, and now Kiss have found a way to cash in on this fun.

Yes, as you might have guessed by the headline and picture above, Kiss are selling official small bags of air – or air guitar strings – for $4.00 a pop. This might sound like a really stupid idea because it’s literally just a bag of air that contains absolutely nothing, but apparently they’re flying out like hotcakes. Maybe they really do improve the air guitar experience?
One website that isn’t convinced of their value is metalsucks.net, who nicely summed up exactly what you were getting for your money:
These strings are precision manufactured to the highest standards and most exacting specifications to ensure consistency, optimum performance, and long life. KISS Air Guitar Strings are made from nothing wrapped around more nothing, with specially tempered nothing-plated high carbon nothing, producing a well-balanced tone for your air guitar. Gauges .000, .000, .000, .000, .000, and .000. And best of all, they’re only four bucks for a pack of none! WHAT AN AMAZING VALUE!!! That’s a great use of four dollars and is definitely not just throwing your money away.
Yeah, I couldn’t really agree more – this is one of the biggest wastes of money in history. If people want to buy literally nothing with their hard earned cash though then I suppose you’ve got to take advantage of that.
Amazingly, these guitar strings aren’t yet available online and you can only pick them up in Vegas. I suppose that kinda makes sense as people are more likely to be on holiday/wasted when passing through so are more easily susceptible to novelty items, but I still think they’re missing out on a trick by not offering them to buy via mail order. There are definitely enough idiots out there.
For more air guitar (kind of), check out this absolutely ripped guy miming Smells Like Teen Spirit. Completely ridiculous.
