Update: Rodney Ho from Access Atlanta interviews Larry Platt HERE
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. â€œHe had his underwear showing, â€ Platt recalled. The song came to him spontaneously. He started chanting the chorus to â€œPants on the Ground.â€
â€œHe was being disrespectful so I wanted to embarrass him, â€ Platt said. â€œHe rolled his eyes and pulled his pants up a little bit.â€
Gee, everybody loves General Larry Platt, the 62 year old veteran and civil rights worker who amused the judges, nee, AMERICA with his catchy little ditty, “Pants on the Ground.” Wear a belt, y’all! Suspenders will do.
The fine folks at AOL Popeater have compiled the best “Pants” remixes found on You Tube. Of course, the remixes began popping up almost immediately…
Check all 8 after the jump. What’s your favorite? I’m partial to the autotuned version, myself, with the yippie little judges comments in the background.
