"Pants on the Ground" man, a civil rights veteran, liked his "Idol" cameo
"It played real real good," Larry Platt said of his much talked-about appearance on last night's show. “I liked it. I loved it." Platt calls himself "General" because he says he marched with Martin Luther King Jr. As for the song itself, Platt was inspired to write it after seeing a man on the street with a baby on his arm and pants slipping below his waist. “He was being disrespectful so I wanted to embarrass him," says Platt. “He rolled his eyes and pulled his pants up a little bit.”
