Winnebago Man

He’s called “The Angriest Man on Earth?

Unearthed outtakes of a Winnebago sales ad meant for dealers. The sales rep in it, Jack Rebney, has a not-so-great day that becomes a viral sensation.

But who’s the real man behind the outbursts? And why is he so angry?

Note: Winnebago Man is ranked #7 in my Top 22 Funniest Documentaries.

  • Jack is invited to The Red Vic in San Francisco to show the movie and meet the fans he doesn’t seem to know he has.
  • There’s a painting of Jack as Shrek hanging in the DreamWorks Studios headquarters.
