62-year-old Larry Platt or "General" Larry Platt, gained instant internet fame and my respect last night with his American Idol rap 'Pants on the Ground.' The hilarious rap is about today’s youth and their love for having pants that go to the ground.
Larry wowed the judges and his song is taking the internet by storm. Sadly he wasn’t allowed to advance due to being a few years (34) over the age limit. I wish Larry Platt all the luck in the world with his song 'Pants on the Ground.'
