State Senator Eric Adams is launching a campaign to discourage kids from wearing saggy pants.
The Brooklyn lawmaker released a YouTube video over the weekend to encourage younger people to demonstrate their confidence by pulling up their pants and ending the sagging pants trend.
Adams also unveiled a new billboard campaign throughout the borough with phrases like "Raise your pants, raise your image!" to encourage young Brooklynites to pull their pants up.
Adams says that while kids will be kids, it's up to adults to send the right message.
The"Stop the Sag" billboards will be installed today in several locations including Rockaway Parkway, Franklin Avenue, Nostrand Avenue and Fulton Street.
Adams says he used $2,000 in campaign funds to pay for the ads.
