Winnebago Man

"Will you do me a kindness?"

Winnebago Man is a 2010 documentary about the notorious viral videos of a series of outtakes from a commercial. The story traces the videos back through widely circulated VHS copies, the hiring of private detectives and finally finding the name and location of the colorful salesman in the video. The documentary maker visits with the man for a series of often profane and angry interviews that explore the man’s feelings on being the butt of such a long running joke. The salesman is then taken to a found footage festival where his videos are being shown. He proves himself to be an entertaining and engaging guest at the event, finally making peace with his role in one of the first viral videos.
