Bjorn Rebney hints at a sad side to growing up with Winnebego Man

Bellator head honcho Bjorn Rebney has an interesting link to one of the early internet memes: his father is the infamous Winnebago Man from Youtube, a crazy camper salesman who cursed and screamed so much during the filming of a commercial that the crew put together a 5 minute video of him freaking out.

Ariel Helwani talks to Bjorn and finds out the crew hated his dad so much they released the video ‘to get back at him.’ He also made it sound like growing up with an angry individual like Winnebego Man as a dad had its downsides. Shocking, I know. At least Bjorn doesn’t have to worry about his dad writing a book about him.
