'Pants On The Ground' Used By Canadian Politician To Attack Rival (VIDEO)

The "Pants on the Ground" phenomenon has now made its way into politics.

T.J. Burke, a Canadian politician, busted out the now ubiquitous song last week to attack comments made by a political rival. The incident, which happened inside the New Brunswick Legislature, has since become a minor Internet hit.

According to the Canadian Press, Burke was responding to comments made on CBC by Conservative Opposition Leader David Alward, which according to Burke, left Alward with his "pants down." It was at this point that Burke busted into song -- "Pants on the ground, pants on the ground, looking like a fool with his pants on the ground" -- before being greeted with a round of applause.

For those unfamiliar with the number, it comes courtesy of "General" Larry Platt's comical audition for "American Idol" which you can see here.
