Pants on the Ground Goes Through the Roof

We all know how crazy, kooky, and just all around outrageous American Idol can be, but 62-year-old Larry Platt took a whole new approach this year as the tour hit Atlanta. Caution: you may want to grab a belt to avoid the problem of "Pants on the Ground," a song written by the singer himself.

His performance on American Idol has given him celebrity status, and although it may not not the type of fame he was looking for, the 1 million fans on Facebook and over 1 million views on YouTube are astounding. This video has even sparked many spoofs from Jimmy Fallon to Brett Favre. In fact, the editor of the social-media blog Mashable, Adam Ostrow, declared the spectacle "the year's first mega viral hit." Pretty impressive for such an old American Idol contestant. We just can't get enough "Pants of the Ground."
