BlackBerry's U2 Commercial...Brought To You By Apple

Is it just me, or does the new Blackberry commercial featuring U2 look a hell of a lot like an Apple ad? Or, more specifically, the Coldplay Apple ad?

This little nugget of Apple envy was pointed out by TechCrunch, and I will have to agree that the similarities are pretty obvious. What's more striking is U2's willingness to play the corporate field. Bono is a founder of Elevation Partners, a company with a major stake in Palm. U2 has also been heavily involved with Apple in the past and their new concert tour is sponsored by RIM. Three major rivals...I hope they all wore protection. [TechCrunch]
