Pants on the Ground, Another Viral Hit!

Category: Entertainment


.....

Who would have expected this to be a viral hit?

Thanks to the power of  the Internet, a video posted on YouTube of 62-year-old activist “General” Larry Platt singing his own original song during the Atlanta auditions for the ninth season of American Idol paved the way for his song to become an overnight success.

The song’s title is “Pants on the Ground” and in the days that followed the January 13 airing of American Idol, several celebrities performed the song including Jimmy Fallon impersonating Neil Young on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon and Brett Favre singing it in the locker room after beating the Dallas Cowboys in the playoffs.

Larry Platt is already 62 years old, hence, he was not allowed to continue due to the show’s age limit of 28 years old. However, his performance has already become part of a phenomenon buoyed by the power of the Internet. It reminded me of the Pinoy duo Rin on the Rox.

If you are looking for the Pants on the Ground lyrics, here it is:

Pants on the ground
Pants on the ground
Lookin’ like a fool with your pants on the ground

With the gold in your mouth
Hat turned sideways
Pants hit the ground
Call yourself a cool cat
Lookin’ like a fool
Walkin’ downtown with your pants on the ground

Get it up, hey!
Get your pants off the ground
Lookin’ like a fool
Walkin’ talkin’ with your pants on the ground.

Get it up, hey!
Get your pants off the ground
Lookin’ like a fool with your pants on the ground

Watch “General” Larry Platt singing Pants on the Ground at the American Idol audition:

There’s a good chance Pants on the Ground will be included in the American Idol compilation album.
