DVD - Winnebago Man
You've seen the video on YouTube - A crazy dude trying to make a video for Winnebago, back in the 80's, but his temper, lack of ability to memorize his lines, and the various bugs that always seem to be swarming around him, create a hilarious outpouring of expletives and attitude. Ever wonder what happened to that guy? Ben Steinbauer did, and he made a documentary about it. The film's entire premise cycles around finding Jack Rebney, the man in the video, and seeing what his reaction is to the online fame he has garnered. Winnebago Man is thoroughly enjoyable and very human, and I can't recommend it enough.
