According to reports, legendary shoemaker (and now Nike imprint) Converse is planning a major ad campaign to celebrate their 100th anniversary. The company was formed in 1908.

The report notes that living musicians M.I.A., Common, Karen O., Joan Jett, and Green Day's Billie Joe Armstrong will be participating. Of some note is that the campaign will also include Ian Curtis (of Joy Division), Sid Vicious, James Dean, Hunter S. Thompson. Hopefully Converse will not repeat the mistakes of a certain boot company and actually ask first. Of course, Nike probably learned their lesson.
