'Pants on the Ground' Singer Larry Platt Offered Record Deal


'Pants on the Ground' Singer Larry Platt Offered Record Deal


There is a chance General Larry Platt will release 'Pants on the Ground' this year as the veteran has been offered a record deal by Jake Records.

62-year-old Larry Platt who claims his fame across the U.S. after auditioning "American Idol" in Atlanta has been offered a record deal by Jake Records. Thus, his self-written track "Pants on the Ground" which is currently sweeping the nation may be released sometime soon.

"General Larry Platt has an energy about him that is infectious," the company's CEO Scott Thomas praised the veteran. "We'd love to work with Mr. Platt to generate some exposure for his original song, but also the causes that he holds near and dear to him."

Though failing to receive a golden ticket from the Idol singing show, Larry Platt successfully made judge Randy Jackson to get up, sing and dance with him at the end of his audition. This catchy tune also gave Simon Cowell "a horrible feeling that song could be a hit."

More and more American people are infected by Larry's song as his audition footage hit the YouTube and garnered thousand views. From the video-sharing website, it was brought to the locker room by Minnesota Vikings quarterback Brett Favre and invaded the small screen once again as Jimmy Fallon covered it on his show, and the ladies from "The View" invited Larry to perform it on their talk show.

    Does it not remind you of a time when things were much simpler and people wore their clothes correctly; pants off the ground, shirt tucked in, pocket protector in place. Gee Wiz Wally!

    The majority of People Aren't laughing At him, They're laughing with him....the things that make people laugh are his mocking outfit to the stereotypes of "ghetto" people, who have their 'pants to the ground', and he's also the color of which is also 'stereo-sized' to be more 'ghetto'. It's just hilarious that a 62 year old african american man, is the first person to ever really promote a song like this in an non-negative way, because what he say's is true. It's just a very weird ironical coincidence.(also...post from before; if america didn't have morals anymore, then how would this song be here in the first place?)

    Damn that comment by dark was funny but racist as fuck. The only reason it was funny was because it was mostly true, he probaably will make more than the actual contestants.

    Platt is a primary example that you don't need to win American Idol to get a record deal. Hell, you don't even need talent or a professional/musical background. You just need to sing a catchy tune in the auditions. Platt isn't the best singer in the world, but his song is what people want to listen to. It's probable that, regardless of who actually wins this year, he will make a lot more money just on this song than all of the songs on the winner's album put together. Way to go, Platt. Niggers singing about pants on the ground is the crack for this generation's music goers.

    Are you people serious? He's a slightly strange old man who wrote a strange song and people like to laugh at him (not with him). They want to parade him on TV as a joke and make money off him, while telling him they respect his 'talent'. Its exploitation of a sweet-natured but credulous old man.

    dont miss the big picture. I dont think he is down grading black people, but it is shameful to see young MEN having to hold their pants with one hand to even walk. blacks and whites are doing it. 'LOOKING LIKE A FOOL" YOU GO LARRY

    You all are missing the point there is no racism in wanting our handsome young black men to put on a belt and act as if they are a proud culture we need them to become more than rappers and jailbirds...

    Yes, sir!!!
    Jan 24, 2010

    Smart guy is stupid! Wait, wait, how's this racist??? Furthermore, how can smart guy even say that. I see all races taking part in this stupidity!! Getcha pants up, man!!! I LOVE this song!!!

    Plus, umm this guy was a civil rights activist and I'm not sure if you've noticed, but he's black. Which means, if he were racist, he would be disrespecting his own race. Rather, he is addressing a problem that causes racism. And rap artists who act like gangsters stand up for what they believe in? I listened to rap for many years, exactly what values are they standing up for? That you gain respect by talking and acting tough, and constantly referring to violence?

  •

    Smart guy, you should think before you say things like that. This song is about people who dress and act like fake thugs. And I don't know if you're aware, but he would be addressing white kids as well as black, so the idea that this is racist is absurd. Wake up, "politically correct" America, denouncing stupid trends and attacking race are completely separate things. Do you talk to black people? Are you aware that most of them feel the same way, that people who dress and act like this create stereotypes? Get the facts straight, everything that is controversial is not racist.

    As far as I can make out this "rap" has about 3 lines to it. No melody and not an original beat. And that is enough for a record deal these days? No wonder people don't buy music anymore.

    He needs to go back to the original version he had on American Idol. Someone tried to fix it up on The View, and it came out bland. He did it best all by himself! Loved it!
