Civil rights veteran becomes Internet sensation
Jan. 15, 2010, 5:45 AM EST
ATLANTA (AP) -- Pants. On. The. Ground.
With those four words, "General" Larry Platt has gone from "American Idol" reject to Internet sensation.
The 63-year-old civil rights veteran performed his original hit at an audition for the show's ninth season, winning over judges Randy Jackson and Kara DioGuardi — and earning a nervous endorsement from incurable skeptic Simon Cowell.
"I have a horrible feeling that song could be a hit," Cowell reluctantly predicted.
Platt's fan base exploded after the show Wednesday night, as his audition hit YouTube and Twitter. Within hours, he had been clicked and tweeted into one of the Internet's most popular topics.
On Thursday at his home in East Atlanta, the e-celebrity seemed dazed by the attention.
