Larry Platt, American Idol-American Hero

Pants on the ground Pants On The Ground.. American Idol - American Hero

Pants on the ground.  Pants on the ground.  Looking like a fool with your pants on the ground.

Just about everybody has seen the video gone madly viral from last weeks American Idol.  60+ year old Larry Platt auditioned for the show by singing his own song titled "Pants On The Ground".  It was insanely funny, fairly catchy, and a great social commentary.

But Larry Platt is not a publicity seeking, 15 minutes of fame, wannabee.  He is long time activist for civil rights and other important issues.  He marcehd along side MLK and John Lewis.  He was beaten during the "Bloody Sunday march" from Selma to Montomery.

On Sept 4, 2001 the Georgia General Assembly declared Larry Platt day in the state of Georgia!

"For the past 40 years, Larry Platt has given of himself in service to the people of the City of Atlanta, the State of Georgia, and the nation...Larry Platt merits the highest recognition for his many valuable contributions to the Civil Rights Movement and his dedication to the struggle for equality and human rights."


But Here is the original video from American Idol and just a few of the covers that have already appeared.  I certainly hope that Larry finds a way to get some royalties from this!
