This Summer's Best Movie
In case you don't know him yet, I'd like to introduce you to Jack Rebney. Consider these videos NSFW-WH (not safe for work without headphones):
These outtakes from a 1988 Winnebago commercial have become somewhat of an internet sensation over the past few years -- so much so that last year, several filmmakers set out to find the man behind the commercials himself.
Their search and subsequent re-discovery of Jack Rebney was made into an 87-minute documentary which has already won critical acclaim and is set to open in New York on July 9th. It's been described as being equal parts hilarious and touching and has already played to rave reviews at SXSW last year. Here's the trailer:
So this summer, skip all the high-budget crap that's just gonna be the same old stuff they put out every year and if you can, go see Winnebago Man. As Jack Rebney himself would tell you, "FUCK! SHIT!"
I couldn't have said it better myself.
