Jack Rebney the real name of the RV salesman who became known as “The Winnebago Man,” whose hilarious, foul-mouthed outbursts circulated on VHS tapes in the ’90s before turning into a full-blown Internet phenomenon in 2005, seen by 20 million people worldwide, according to a news release.

Filmmaker Ben Steinbauer goes in search of Rebney — and finds him living alone on a mountain top, unaware of his fame. WINNEBAGO MAN is a laugh-out-loud look at viral culture and an unexpectedly poignant tale of one man’s response to unintended celebrity.

Release date: July 9, 2010
