Such Great Nerve
Electro-pop sensations The Postal Service are accusing Apple Computers of plagiarism. According to Pitchfork, the duo discovered that the directors of the Postal Service’s “Such Great Heightsâ€ť video—Josh Melnick and Xander Charity—have made a commercial spot that parodies their original work, but they failed to contact the group about it, and PS members Ben Gibbard and Jimmy Tamborello aren’t amused. You can view the original and the ad version here and here.
No legal action has been taken yet, and with the “Such Great Heightsâ€ť video topping iTunes download chart in the wake of the parody, maybe it’s best to let it go.
