Winnebago Man Confirmed for Film Fest!

"WINNEBAGO who?" you say... If you've never heard of him, he's the star of one of the most side-splittingly funny viral videos ever: Jack Rebney, a 40-something Gerald McRaney-lookalike who's trying to remember his lines for an RV promo video but keeps screwing up, leading to a torrent of expletives hilariously edited into a blooper reel by the crew he hired to shoot the vid. I originally became aware of Rebney through the Found Footage Festival DVD, and since then the clip has become an internet phenomenon, so much so that filmmaker Ben Steinbauer was compelled to track down Rebney and make a documentary on him! The doco has played to some very good press in the US, and word has it that it is now confirmed to play at this year's Auckland International Film Festival as part of the Incredibly Strange Film programme. Anywho, here's the original clip (WARNING: contains offensive language):
