Delivering irony, one commercial at a time

Perhaps you've seen the recent commercials for UPS, featuring a guy and a white board explaining how Brown can work for businesses, yada yada yada. Perhaps you've noticed the music playing underneath the advertisement: An understated electronic medley of simple notes and beats that doesn't overpower or distract the viewer from the message.

Here's the ironic part: That music is part of the instrumental version of "Such Great Heights" by an electronic indie pop band called...

The Postal Service.
