Winnebago Man (2009)

In the early days of YouTube, outtakes from a 1980s R.V. infomercial quickly became a viral sensation. In the videos, Jack Rebney complains and curses about various aspects of the shoot — the dialogue, the heat and the crew, among other irritants. Has time changed the man forever to be known as The Angriest Man in the World? In Winnebago Man, director Ben Steinbauer is successful in tracking down Rebney and the subject gives himself over to candid interviews about his anger and coming to terms with Internet celebrity.
