Boing Boing is proud to be first to present the trailer for the new documentary, Winnebago Man. I can't wait to see the film! (Warning: trailer above has plenty of cussing.)
Ben Steinbauer, director of Winnebago Man, says:
Boing Boing was one of the first websites to feature the "Winnebago Man" viral video, so it seems fitting that the theatrical trailer for the Winnebago Man movie, should make its premiere here. I first discovered the "Winnebago Man" clip in 2002, when a friend handed me a VHS tape with a bunch of underground videos. The blurry outtakes of a middle-aged RV salesman having a meltdown, was far and away my favorite. The hilarious barrage of profanity was so jaw-dropping that my roommate and I watched the clip every night for a year. I literally memorized it, and showed it to everyone I knew.
After the online video revolution took off and the "Winnebago Man" turned into one of the first Internet video sensations, I became fascinated that millions of people were watching this man, yet no one knew anything about him. I learned that his name was Jack Rebney, and I eventually hired a private investigator to find out if he was still alive. It turns out that Rebney had been living alone on top of a mountain for more than 15 years, and until recently he had no idea about his online fame or that the outtakes even existed. And that's when the real story began.
Winnebago Man will be released in theaters in the U.S. and Canada starting July 9.
