Last night on American Idol, Simon Cowell told 62-year-old civil rights movement veteran General Larry Platt that his original audition song, "Pants On The Ground," could possibly become a big hit. And as usual, Simon was right. The man knows a superstar when he sees one.
Literally within minutes of the General's mind-meltingly amazing performance of his rap rant about gangsta pants (see the original here), the clip was all over YouTube, and by the following morning, a crew of ambitious amateur DJs had recorded and uploaded various "Pants" remixes. The result is like "Pants On The Dance Floor," if you will.
Honestly, this song COULD be a hit. Many of these remixes are better than what, say, Soulja Boy or T-Pain are churning out these days. Plus all these mixes convey the same positive, much-needed message...because, let's face it, baggy, draggy gangsta trousers are pretty passé.
So get' em up! And get down to the remixes below:
