In the '80s, RV salesman Jack Rebney's profanity-strewn, on-the-job meltdown was captured on video and passed around on VHS tapes before exploding into an Internet phenomenon seen by millions. When a young filmmaker goes in search of the legendary man, he finds Rebney living alone on a mountain, as sharp-tongued as ever, but more intelligent and lovable than anyone could have imagined. Here is one man's response to unwanted celebrity, and proof that truth is stranger and funnier than fiction

Ben Steinbauer tracks down Jack Rebney, whose foul-mouthed, ill-tempered outtakes from a 1989 recreational vehicle sales video saw him become an internet star. Steinbauer's film explores issues of privacy, internet bullying and ageing, and shows how even the most rambunctious individuals have a human side. It is an intelligent, hilarious and unexpectedly poignant look at one man's response to internet fame, and a story about how a so-called humiliation can become a beacon of light to many
