Atlanta auditioner Larry Platt

*”General Larry Platt, the 61-year-old “American Idol” hopeful whose original audition song “Pants on the Ground” has become a nationwide phenomenon, has reportedly hired a lawyer in hopes of cashing in on the tune’s popularity.

According to, Platt never copyrighted his ditty against men who let their pants sag, so he is looking to hire a lawyer to help him collect some kind of compensation.

For the record, TMZ reports, “Platt has seen Brett Favre’s rendition and liked it … and if Brett’s up for it, Platt would love to get Brett on board for a duet.” Watch the clip below.
