We talked to the Mann behind the videos (had to) and this is what he had to say:
“As for asking permission, I got a call pretty soon after I woke up yesterday. It was pretty simple, they called and asked and I said, um, yes!
So, I talked to Apple a little after the show, they thanked me and I thanked them. I forget the name of the guy…I think he was in PR. He probably called yesterday around 3 or so. As for compensation, the increased interest in my music, etc, seems like a lot to me… I don’t really feel the need to ask for anything more! If that makes any sense.”
