Two months ago, I wrote about how General Larry Platt's audition on American Idol with Pants on the Ground became an internet viral hit.
Platt now has an ally in New York State Senator Eric Adams. Senator Adams, together with Fully Persuaded for Children and Families Inc, has launched a campaign to encourage young people to raise their pants, with six billboards unveiled in Brooklyn.
See reporting by CNN. Needless to say, some youths in Brooklyn are not happy about being told what to wear (reported in The Brooklyn Paper).
The simple truth is that it looks ridiculous.
