What’s not to like about this new Converse advertisement? Between God Shammgod, Dr. J and Kenny Anderson, you’ve got the “legendary cult heroes” thing pretty well covered. Jim Jones is in there, being his usual ridiculous self while wearing a hooded sweatshirt with cutoff sleeves. The Chuck Taylor is prominently featured. And, best of all, the song is “Hello Operator” by the White Stripes, which is one of my favorite songs by one of my favorite bands from one of my favorite records.

It’s almost like a Converse marketing executive hired Leonardo DiCaprio to steal my ideal basketball commercial from my subconscious while I’m in a dreamlike state. Tas, get your top.
