    My brother had the same shoes as the seated guy. And he also wore them with his suits. It was certainly the style at that moment.

  2. lauri says:

    My uncle wore that exact suit to his wedding in the eighties. Pretty sure I’ve never seen it anywhere else.

  3. Steve says:

    Only the kid break the rules when it comes to combing his hair. Center parts ruled the 70s!

  4. wiliam says:

    The “king” on the throne is wearing shoes that match his hair color perfectly.

  5. Linda says:

    There’s a whole lot of perfectly feathered hair in this shot – simply beautiful. The little boy’s pants are a pinnacle of 1970s fashion sense. Here’s the photographer: “And ladies, we have these enormous, velour pillows for you today. Get comfy in your dresses, on the floor – except for you, ma’am, you can perch on the wooden armrest of this enormous royal throne…”

  6. Sarah says:

    This one needs to go in the AFP Hall of Fame.. for sure! Love the look of the 70’s..classic!

  7. Deb says:

    I can’t…. I don’t… I am just speechless at this one. TRUE awkwardness.

  8. Michael Mcfascist says:

    you’re supposed to give the genes some room to breathe

  9. Ann says:

    I am guessing that the women are all sisters. The brunettes are with their husbands, and the blonde is single – she is hugging her nephew, the son of the sitting couple. Any takers?

  10. Jermainia says:

    They are the seldom-seen neighbors on One Day at a Time.

  11. Joe says:

    The truly creepy thing for me here is that that little boy looks exactly like me as a child, I’m gonna have to call my mom now…

  12. tina says:

    I’ve got it! The man sitting and the woman with her arm around him are married… the woman with dark hair sitting and the dark haired man are the married woman’s bro and sis and the light haired woman sitting is the man’s sister and her little boy!….. they are ready for that 50 sec clock!!

  13. Matt says:

    Some family members were added to the cast to improve TV ratings.

  14. Jon says:

    Okay, so how are these people related? Based on the physical contact, I get that the two people wearing ties are probably married, but who is everybody else?

  15. Patti says:

    What a pair of stud muffins! Lucky Ladies to be in the company of such eye candy.

  16. steph says:

    if nothing else…this family has great hair care habits….everyone one of them has beautiful shiny hair. My 70’s pics..not so much.

  17. John says:

    This was the original cast of that 70’s show.

  18. Lady says:

    And that is SUCH a “Family Feud” pose. I will have that theme song as an ear worm all night long. Thanks AFP.

  19. Brian says:

    hahahaha my dad looked like that when he was a teen

  20. Missy says:

    I am betting a hundred to one that little boy hates plaid today all because of this photo.

  21. Pikkewyn says:

    Don’t worry, Jason, when you get big like us you can have feathered hair, too, and I’m sure it will be more popular than ever!

  22. CloseEncounterKid says:

    WOW! I did look like the Close Encounter kid!!! I just love this picture, it will live forever!

  23. Joanne says:

    I think that blonde boy is just adorable!

  24. peasncarrots says:

    Three-piece suit with casual loafers. It makes an otherwise great looking guy seem nos so put together.

  25. It looks like a real life Rusty Venture.

    • falx says:

      oh my god thanks so much for saying that! i was literally scrolling through these comments to see if anyone else noticed that that guy looks CRIMINALLY close to a college-aged rusty venture! way to go:)

  26. Teresa says:

    This requires an explanation.
    I like the way they tried to coordinate their colors but do you think the photographer could have chosen a matching background

  27. Hhh says:

    The little boy looks just like the kid from Close Encounters.

  28. Romeo says:

    Or maybe they’re the cast for some weird cop show, complete with secretaries and the smart kid…

  29. RayRay says:

    And why are they posed like the Addams Family???

  30. A says:

    I’m feeling sorry for the woman on the floor cushion. It makes her look like the family pet or something.

  31. Rachel says:

    Guy standing and guy sitting. Identical twins? I think so.

  32. Ginger says:

    Polyester owes its life to the 70s.

    • Betsy says:

      Or does the 70’s owe its life to polyester?

      • BerthaB says:

        C’mon now. The men are gorgeous. Something I would be proud to bring home to Momma. Jealousy is an ugly thing. Let’s get it under control ladies! If he was around now. I would gooble him up…Fez looking or not… that’s class.

  33. Katie says:

    I am so glad I was born into this family after this photo was taken…

  34. poaster says:


  35. Dan says:

    Sansabelt pants are a timeless classic

  36. Don says:

    Producer- Now explain this to me again. Your sitcom is about a mother that is musically inclined, has five kids that can sing and play instruments, and they go around getting into funny situations and they always end the show singing to a crowd of people?

    Writer- Trust me. People are gonna love it. And I’ve come up with the name for the show…The Pidgeon Family! What do you think?

  37. Michael says:

    It was a different America.

  38. Josh says:

    One of these items doesn’t belong, one of these items is not like the other…

  39. Chad says:

    Nice caption!

  40. Kris says:

    Normal seventies picture, but one family member looks slightly different than the rest of the familia.

  41. Tom says:

    That watch looks like it could store phone numbers in 1979

  42. Bunnyluv says:

    The mom/child pair and the two dark-haired women look like they could be related…where oh where did the guys come from??? This DOES have a Big Love feeling, actually…but then how to explain the other dude? An exchange student, adopted or half-sibling, or some kind of rival who just showed up?

  43. Chadillac says:

    Perfect Caption!

  44. Molly J says:

    Look at ALL the qiana!

  45. mrs5180 says:

    It’s like they KNEW it was the late 70’s

  46. Gigi says:

    Isn’t this the cast of “That 70s show”? 🙂

  47. jkc says:

    These people are all going to vote for Pedro.

  48. carol says:

    I’m so confused.

  49. Anthony says:

    Hummmmmmmmmmmm! Very Interesting, is that Fez?

  50. knicol says:

    Is the guy standing Pedro from Napoleon Dynamite?
