Family Home Video Day: Grandma Cordil's House, Part2: The Urkel

Grandma Cordil's House, Part 2: The Urkel


video

So, I had two different titles for this week's FHVD clip, and even prepared two different endings. The other title was "The Accordion," but in the end, I went with "The Urkel," because I thought the "The Accordion" turned out to be more sad than funny.
I'll post the alternate ending below; let me what you think.

I think Amy is wearing my white pumps?

I couldn't get the first video to work.

We were reinacting a specific family reunion talent show. (who happened to be reinacting Urkel) I am just glad I already suckered Dwight into marrying me. But if he leaves me, I think we will all know why. I hear Anna in the background.....smart move!

(Ed. Note: Emily is the one wearing white pumps, not Amy. "The Urkel Dance" first aired in an episode of Family Matters in 1991 (and, therefore, it couldn't have been reenacted at a family reunion talent show until after 1991)--this FHV came from 1989. If it's any consultation, I think Dwight would agree with me when I say that your legs look amazing.)

Amy Thurston said...

I guess we were really just ahead of our time then. Urkel ripped us off. Do we have hard proof that this video was shot before Urkel's rip off dance? I think there is some money to be had here!

Were am I in that clip..maybe crimping the sides of my hair??

Emily said...

It just keeps getting better and better!

Amanda said...

That just made my day. Thanks so much for posting these videos. They make me feel happy inside.

Andrew Waite said...

DANNNG! i was flexible! great stuff keep it up!

abutler said...

Where the heck was I, I'm sure I had probably been put in charge of half of those kids...right?

Katie said...

Poor Andy! I watched this video with an outside perspective. I nearly cried. Those shorts were a gross misuse of fabric, and child abuse if you want my opinion.

Amber Waite said...

As Andy's wife, watching this video makes me even more thankful for my children!

Rhonda said...

You are so funny! What a crazy family! This is now my #1 site, because you are outa-site!!!!!

Vegas Family said...

You, Sara and Amanda look so cute. As painful as I look in the 80's I do love looking back.
Great Job!

Sorry Andy, but I definitely liked the accordian version better. I was so ANNOYING!!!! The best part of this video is that dad is the one recording and instead of helping Andy and even just asking Sherod nicely to stop, he just zooms in and keeps on recording. He was wise beyond his years because he know that it would be funny to watch in 18 years so thanks Jenny for posting it but the big thank you goes to dad for letting it happen and capturing the moment.

Andrew Waite said...

wow.... all i can say is wow... i just watched the horror again, sherod actually manages to get me to kick myself in the face at the beginning of the alternate ending video. wow.

Katie said...

It has been three days without an update. I don't know what to do with myself. I just keep checking back every couple of minutes or so just in case...still nothing. Im still waiting, can't get dressed (what if I miss something) I will just sit her in my pajamas all day checking back every few minutes...waiting

Shed said...

I am not proud of my "beat Andy years." But in my defense, Andy had kicked me in my no-no spot 3 times off camera. He really had it coming. Love you Drew.

Kimmy said...

Oh my goodness. Ya'll remind me of my family back in Georgia. It's crazy and I love it.

Memzy said...
