Stop The Sag: State Senator Starts Campaign To End Saggy Pants (VIDEO)

State Senator Eric Adams has a message for the youth of America: Stop the Sag!

The Brooklyn politician is behind six new billboards around town taking on the saggy pants trend.

Adams tells the Daily News, "Children will be children. But as adults, we need to be on record and tell them they're doing something wrong."

Adams' call for the end to the sagging trend comes on the heels of "American Idol" contestant Larry Platt's "Pants on the Ground" viral sensation in which he assailed people in song for wearing their pants too low.

In his own video, Adams tells saggers, "You can raise your level of respect if you raise your pants"
