Pants on the Ground, in the Locker Room: NFL Stars Embrace Larry Platt Classic

by at . Comments

After Larry Platt serenaded American Idol viewers with "Pants on the Ground" earlier this month, Simon Cowell said he feared the song would become a major hit.

The judge was right, partly because Fox has marketed it that way - but also because professional football stars have taken an unusual liking to the single.

Following his team's Divisional Round playoff victory over the Dallas Cowboys, Vikings quarterback Brett Favre led a team celebration by reciting the tune.

More recently, Carolina running back DeAngelo Williams posted a video of his "Pants on the Ground" remix. Check it out below:

Meanwhile, Platt himself actually showed up at a Vikings' team meeting over the weekend.

His performance drew raucous cheers and laughter, though it would also serve as a harbinger for what came next: Minnesota lost to New Orleans yesterday in the NFC Championship Game, as Favre ended the season by figuratively dropping his pants on national TV.

His regulation-ending interception cost the Vikings a spot in the Super Bowl.
