The Black Keys will guest star on a forthcoming episode of Comedy Central's Workaholics, reports Entertainment Weekly. The rock duo will play a couple of dirtbags waiting to have a case heard in a small claims court. According to Entertainment Weekly's sources, both Dan Auerbach and Patrick Carney will sport "oddly long ponytails" on the show. The episode is set to air sometime this summer.

The band signed on to guest star mainly because they are big fans of the show, which follows the adventures of a trio of slackers. (The title is meant to be ironic.) The show used a bit of their recent hit "Lonely Boy" in an episode last fall.

“Vans”

The Pack | 2006

Berkeley, California rappers the Pack made their footwear choice clear in 2006 with the song "Vans." The track caught the attention of Too $hort, who signed them to his imprint. MTV refused to play the video for the song, though, claiming it was essentially a commercial for the product. Rapper Lil' B disagreed. "I didn’t know nobody [at] Vans," he said. "I was just a rapper who wore Vans." Even without MTV's support, Lil' B recognized the impact of the track. "God blessed me with such a revolutionary song… People around my age know who really started a lot of the dressing people are into now."
