Globes palate cleanser! Brett Favre does 'Pants on the Ground'

January 18, 2010 | 11:59 am

Too much Hollywood for you in the wake of the Golden Globe Awards? Perhaps Brett Favre can help you out with that.

Seems the Minnesota Vikings quarterback told rookie teammate Percy Harvin that if they beat the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday, he'd sing "Pants on the Ground" -- the tune Larry Platt did for "American Idol" -- in the locker room after the game.

And they did win. So he did sing.

Like Kiefer Sutherland before him, Favre is a man of his word. Good thing Brett didn't say he'd wear a dress in the locker room (though at least that wouldn't have involved singing, we suppose).
