New Trailer: Have You Met the ‘Winnebago Man’?

This isn’t exactly new as I noticed the trailer for the documentary Winnebago Man being released by Kino International on July 9 a couple of weeks ago, but I am finally getting around to posting it for you all to enjoy.

Personally, I was not at all aware of Jack Rebney, but I guess that shouldn’t come as much of a surprise as he is referred to in the marketing for this documentary as “the most famous man you’ve never heard of”.

Rebney is an RV salesman whose foul-mouthed outbursts circulated underground on VHS tapes in the ’90s before turning into an Internet phenomenon in 2005. You may have actually seen it and didn’t even know it. The not safe for work video included above is this once-underground video, just click play and see if you are familiar with the man referred to now as “Winnebago Man”.

The Winnebago Man documentary is directed by Ben Steinbauer who went on a search for Rebney only to find him living alone on a mountain top, completely unaware of his fame.

The film first showed at the South by Southwest Film Festival in 2009 and has since through a selection of smaller fests before landing at Kino for its upcoming limited roll out on July 9. I have added the trailer for the film directly below. Give it a watch and also know, like the video above, this is not safe for work, so watch with caution if you are in a sensitive work environment.
