Postal Service Vs. Apple + Ryan Adams concert mp3 download

Everybody is talking about the Apple-ad rip-off the Postal Service's video "Such Great Heights." Apparently both commercial and music video is produced by the same duo "Josh & Sander". Here is what Ben Gibbard (frontman in Postal Service and Death Cab for Cutie) has to say:

"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."

Watch: Postal Service - Such Great Heights (.mov)
Watch : Apple/Intel ad (.mov)
Watch: Video & Ad side by side (.mp4)
