Postal Service Video Climbs to #1 at iTMS

Postal Service Video Climbs to #1 at iTMS

by , 1:20 PM EST, January 24th, 2006

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.

First noted by MTV, "Such Great Heights" is the #1 music video download, and is beating out such industry heavyweights as Eminem, Jessica Simpson, and even the original stars-made-stars-by-Apple Black Eyed Peas.

Apple drew Postal Service's ire by hiring the directorial team that created the video for "Such Great Heights" to make its own commercial advertising the transition to Intel processors (see TMO's full coverage for more information).
