Behind The Awkwardness: My Favorite Martian 2

“This photo was taken around 1999. I was studying at the School of Art and the teacher wanted us to create a story based on photos. Some students went to the countryside, others to the sea… I was too busy paying attention to my teenage hormones and I ran out of time to do my homework, so I decided it’d be a good idea just taking some pictures of myself in my bath dressed as… God knows! There are a few more with bizarre outfits, but I think this is probably the worst of all.”

Tune In

“Is this a promotional photo for a new ABC show about a dysfunctional family from the 90s? No, it’s my family! I always felt like my family was the real life version of Malcolm In The Middle, and this picture from Christmas ’99 is photographic proof. PS, I’m the one in the middle. Believe it or not, I actually requested my mom make me that outfit. Viva la purple sweatsuits.”

“It was the first day of school in 1989. Dan had an incident blowing up his bike tire and had to wear an eye patch, Andy is all kinds of nervous, and Joe is proudly saluting in wet pants.”

Behind The Awkwardness: Spotty

“Just found this gem today. Apparently my mother thought it was appropriate to take me to a rave in a dalmation outfit. Needless to say, I was not happy.”
