Is it a good idea to ask your professors for a letter of recommendation/reference if you haven't spoken to them in 5 years?

If your new job wants 3 letters of recommendation/references, is it a bad idea to bother one of your old college professors that you haven't spoke to in 5 years and contact him out of the blue just to ask if he is willing to write you a recommendation/reference?
