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.
