Recreating The Awkwardness

“I recreated a photo of me from 1991. Apparently 23 years is enough time to realize that you don’t believe in fairy tales anymore. Even if you dress like you are in one.”

Easter Surprise - Easter

Easter Surprise

“This was taken Easter morning in 1986.   That’s me and my little sister (14 years younger than me) I had come home from college for the weekend and must have been out the night before.  I obviously wasn’t too happy about having to wake up early for Easter festivities.   I think when my Mom took this picture, she was just happy to have her son home from college to help celebrate the holiday.  The contrast of my little sister all frou frou in her new Sunday dress and me barely dressed and sporting cheesy glasses and a sleazy mustache is just too much.”

Hillbillies

“The place: Rural southern Illinois.  The time: mid 1980s.  The stylin’ dude sitting on the hood of the Nissan 280Z would be yours truly.  Mullet: check.  Shirtless: check.  Red suspenders: check.  Shades : check.  Black suede Robin Hood bootie thingies: check.  The hot gal sitting on the hood of the Mazda between me and the barn mailbox?  Why, that would be my sister, of course.  Lesson:  Sometimes hillbilly stereotypes exist for a reason.”

Grill On Grill - Behind The Awkwardness

Grill On Grill

“While we were visiting our grandparents in south Texas, we made a trip across the border where my little brother picked up a sweet switchblade comb.  As an added bonus, you can see my grandpa’s brother, Fritz, fixing us some lunch with his grill set on top of another grill.”

Cousin Andy’s Wheel Of Fortune

Hi, it’s Mike, co-creator of Awkward Family Photos. I want you to meet my cousin Andy and yes, he’s my actual cousin. Simply put, this is the best piece of video ever and if you’re not a fan of Andy after this, then you’re clearly working for Pat Sajak.
