Jimmy Fallon Covers 'Pants on the Ground' As Neil Young
Thursday's "Late Night with Jimmy Fallon" episode featured the host getting into character as the veteran rocker and performing a mournful, acoustic version of "Pants on the Ground." The latter, of course, is the song that everyone's been talking about since Wednesday's "American Idol," where 62-year-old "General" Larry Platt unveiled his bizarre original song and had both judges and viewers howling. Since it aired, Pratt's "Idol" audition has gone practically bubonic -- remixes and parodies are blowing up across the net, and eight of the top ten most viewed videos in YouTube's music section contain the phrase "Pants on the Ground."
For those who are new to Fallon's strangled tenor and want more, check out this falsetto throwback from his 2002 comedy album, "The Bathroom Wall."
