The deadline has been pushed back a week in Western New York's Funniest Home Videos Contest to allow for a bit of Fourth of July foolery. The new final date is July 6 for submitting videotapes to the Advantage Co., 5195 Main St., Williamsville, N.Y. 14221. The best will be compiled onto a contest tape for voting by viewers, who can take it home rent-free from Video Factory stores starting in mid-July. There's a possibility that it also will be broadcast on local cable systems.
"There have been a lot of tapes of little kids spitting up," an Advantage spokesman reports, "but there have been a few really funny ones, too. One was a bizarre wedding ritual where the groom threw the bride . . . and this was no little girl, either. It went on for five minutes."
