What happens if you wear oversized pants without a belt? Your pants will fall down.

General Larry Platt wrote a song about the popular trend. Even though Platt was too old to compete in the singing contest, the 62 year old musician was allowed to appear on “American Idol” this season to sing “Pants On The Ground.” Instantly, the song about looking like a fool became a hit.

“Pants On The Ground” has been remixed by several different artists and uploaded to YouTube. Jimmy Fallon performed the song as Neil Young. Jimmy Fallon performed the song with American Idol judge Randy Jackson. After defeating the Dallas Cowboys in the playoffs, Brett Farve celebrated with a “Pants On The Ground” chant. Who’s next?
