'Pants on the Ground'

Las Vegas Bound

2/25/2010 8:10 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

0224_pantsontheground_exd2-1"General" Larry Platt is finally cashing in on his "Pants on the Ground" phenomenon -- because "American Idol's" favorite senior citizen is now getting paid to play in Las Vegas.

Platt is scheduled to perform his semi-hit at JET nightclub at the Mirage Hotel on Friday.

Sources at the hotel tell TMZ Platt is being flown from Atlanta first class ... and will get pampered with free food, lodging, several thousand dollars and, last but not least, a steak dinner!

TMZ spoke to Platt's manager, who said this is just one of many shows Mr. Pants has booked recently ... which means the old man is finally getting the money his musical genius deserves.

Good for him! He had the cajones to get on national TV and say (sing) what's needed saying for a long time. People walking around looking like the village idiots while everyone else pretends it's a "style" - wow, just like "The Emperor's New Clothes". Larry's got style, brains, and personal courage, which is more than can be said for the people he sings about.

I hope he makes as much as he can in his short 15 minutes of fame. The song has a ring of truth to it.
