American Idol ‘Pants on the Ground’ Video

The breakout star on Wednesday night’s American Idol wasn’t the chick with the awesome voice, or the cute boy with High School Musical good looks. No, it was General Larry Platt‘s “Pants on the Ground” video that has stormed the Net following his American Idol audition.

The weird, but amusingly entertaining original rap performance by 62-year-old General Larry Platt is already an Internet sensation, even though he didn’t get a golden ticket to Hollywood. Just check out these lyrics and you’ll get the picture:

Lookin’ like a fool with ya pants on the ground.
With da gold in ya mouth, hat turned sideways
Pants hit the ground, ya call yourself a cool cat
Lookin’ like a fool, walking downtown
With ya pants on the ground
Git it up

Now that you have read it, give it a watch and listen. Oh, and btw, Plant – a veteran civil rights activist – plans on releasing the song as a single.
