“looking like a fool with your pants on the ground”….

A 63 year old Atlanta man by the name of Larry Platt Plants has become an overnight sensation after performing an original song by the name of “Pants On The Ground” last night on American Idol. (Pants on the ground quickly became a twitter Trending topic after his appearance) Even though he was more than 30 years over the age limit to compete in American Idol the judges let him perform for comic relief. He sat down with the AJC recently and explained how he came up with the concept of the song:

He was inspired to create the song three years ago when he saw a guy walking down a downtown Atlanta street with a baby in his arm and his pants slipping below his hips. “He had his underwear showing,” Platt recalled. The song came to him spontaneously. He started chanting the chorus to “Pants on the Ground.” “He was being disrespectful so I wanted to embarrass him,” Platt said. “He rolled his eyes and pulled his pants up a little bit.” Platt has since done that to others as well.
