The new number one hit: “Pants on the Ground”

You never know what you will see when you watch American Idol:

“General” Larry Platt signing his composition: “Pants on the Ground”:

Edited to add: There is a method to his madness:

Here is a partial quote from a newspaper article:

Platt — his black jeans securely fastened — proudly showed off black-and-white photographs of himself alongside civil-rights icons the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. and U.S. Rep. John Lewis, and pointed to plaques from city and state officials recognizing his social justice work as a dedicated foot soldier with the Southern Christian Leadership Conference and Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee.

Platt, who worked to elect President Barack Obama, is still an activist and frequently can be seen in downtown Atlanta holding signs protesting foreclosures, war, violence, racism and "any wicked things that take place.”

After seeing a young father with his jeans below his waist, Platt said he was inspired to write "Pants on the Ground.” He said he hopes his message of personal responsibility doesn’t get lost in his popularity.

Edited to add:

“Pants on the Ground” is going viral all over the place. People are sure having fun with it:

If Neal Young sang "Pants on the Ground"……. 

I hope all the popularity of “Pants on the Ground” will help the General to get his point across….
