“The Oprah Winfrey Show,” which has been soliciting videos in search of the next big star, got one that prompted the program’s security to contact the FBI, law enforcement sources said.

The video was of a man who had a Mac 10 machine gun in tow and was making what appeared to be threatening remarks, sources said.

The sources said the man urged Winfrey to put him on the show and said that if she didn’t, she would hear about him somewhere else.

Security for the show, which is taped in Chicago, contacted the local FBI office and the wheels started in motion. Because the man had sent the video from Los Angeles, the FBI and police in that city were notified, sources said.
