At least thats what I\'ve read of them for soo many years now. rn I dont like it, especially for such a dumb commercial. Really would hope for something more special for the white stripes actually dipping into their backcatalog.. maybe triple decker vynils are getting expensivernrn
RE: HELLO OPERATOR FEATURED IN NEW CONVERSE COMMERCIAL
This commercial for Converse, which features Hello Operator, just started hitting your televisions. Full text from the below article can be found here:
"Gritty and raw, the spot was directed by award-winning filmmaker Antoine Fuqua. The ad stars basketball legend Julius “Dr. J” Erving; Carlos Arroyo of the Miami Heat; musicians Jim Jones and Doug E Fresh; legendary ball-handler God Shammgod and Harlem streetball player Adrian “A-Butta” Walton; Converse skaters Kenny Anderson, Sammy Baca, Rune Glifberg and Eli Reed; all set to the thunderous “Hello Operator” by alternative rock band, The White Stripes."
