Sup Pop recording artists The Postal Service
are angry at Apple Computers. Singer/guitarist Ben Gibbard (also of Death Cab For Cutie
) had this to say on the band's official site: "It has recently come to our attention that Apple Computers' new television commercial for the Intel chip features a shot-for-shot recreation of our video for 'Such Great Heights' made by the same filmmakers responsible for the original. We did not approve this commercialization and are extremely disappointed with both parties that this was executed without our consultation or consent."
The song "Such Great Heights" appears on The Postal Service's 2003 album "Give Up
" (click for review).
