    Link: Postal Service Video Climbs to #1 at iTMS
    Description:: Postal Service may be unhappy with Apple about the shot-for-shot creation of their video made for Apple's Intel Mac commercial, but the resulting attention has led to that video, originally released in 2003, being the #1 download on Apple's iTunes Music Store.

    So long, and thanks for all the fish!
    First off, why should Postal Service be mad at Apple? It's the creative directors of the production crew that they should be after instead.

    Secondly, I think that they should just shut up about it because this is the most publicity they've gotten since Garden State which used about 30 seconds of the Acoustic version of Such Great Heights. Honestly, I thought the acoustic sucked, I enjoy the version on their album Give Up much more, in fact it's one of my favorite songs/albums.

    The rivalry is just as genuine as the ones on TV wrestling.

    Exactly. Postal Service are just trying to make sure they're not seen as "sellouts" while at the same time riding all of this publicity to the bank.

    Indeed it was the same director and in fact crew that shot the video (wonder where they have/get access to this chip plant anyways?!?) and Ben from PS and DCfC is just being his whiny emo self.

    Bet they didn't see this coming. They should be pretty happy now I'd think.
