In what may hopefully be the final round of the “Pants on the Ground” remixes. Here is a video that proves even Wanda Sykes can be funny.I think is may actually be my favorite “cover” of the famed General’s audition.
UPDATE: There are a few more covers that we just had to show. First up are Deangelo Williams (vocals) and Ryne Robinson (drums) of the Carolina Panthers with their version.
Here is a quite good original version of “Pants on the Ground” albeit obscenity laced and heavily auto-tuned.
And what maybe the controversy of the day…a Detroit based music group Green Brothers say that their 1996 song “Back Pockets on the Floor” was the inspiration for “Pants on the Ground”. Half of the group, Gerald Green, has posted this comment on his YouTube page:
“This is in regaurds to the General Larry Platt “Pants on The Ground”. His song is a take off of the Green Brothers song ” Back Pockets On The Floor’. Back Pockets On The Floor was written by G. Green andwas copyrighted and recorded by the Green Brothers in 1996. The General’s song have the same intent, idea and in part the same message. YOU BE THE JUDGE AMERICA!!”
