We was at mardi gras and this preacher dude came by and started asking us questions and stuff then my aunt told him to get away and then we seen it on you tube it's like a 30min video of the dude walking around preaching
Your question is somewhat vague. If you were in a public location and were aware of the filming, then you may be considered to have given implicit permission to be taped.
The person filming the public scene will likely own the copyright to the video (unless it was sold or given to someone else). When you appear in a public place, you generally give up any privacy rights in connection with filming. We are filmed all day long in public, by security cameras, traffic cameras, and members of the public. If the content is being exploited for profit, it may be possible to assert a claim for violation of publicity rights, but that is highly dependent on the facts, and on applicable state law. Talk to a licensed attorney familiar with entertainment law, if you want to pursue this further.
