The Funniest Man on Earth



This is the ultimate in 1980s nostalgia. Jack Rebney, RV salesman and self-titled "angriest man alive," is Winnebago Man in a new documentary about one of the first--albeit unwitting-- viral video stars of Youtube. Directed by Ben Steinbauer, the film features Jack Rebney as they discovered him today, still sharply funny and full of ire. The video itself, which can be found here (beware, not safe for work but outrageously hilarious), is a series of 1988 outtakes from an ad for the 1989 Itasca Sunflyer Winnebago motorhome, narrated by Jack Rebney. It was first circulated on VHS by cast and crew of the ad, which then fell into the hands of VHS tape collectors, who copied and traded it until it ended up on Youtube in 2005. Truly one of the funniest outtakes cllp I have ever watched, and a great statement on the unconscious effect even our most insignificant actions can have on the world. Can't wait for the DVD, which comes out on November 2nd! Read all about Winnebago Man here.

I just recently saw this and I was AMAZED at how the documentary maker managed to make what was a funny ten minute clip a touching and true portrait of the man in it. It was really kind of moving towards the end. What an interesting story.
