After Beach House Decline Song Licensing for Ad, Volkswagen Use Fake Version of "Take Care"

A brand new British Volkswagen commercial features "Whispers and Stories," a song from a "team" called Sniffy Dog that is suspiciously similar to Beach House’s Teen Dream closer, "Take Care." Reports have noted the likeness, and now Beach House have issued a statement about the ad on their Facebook page:

The ad agency actively tried to license "Take Care" from us for weeks, to which we politely declined. People's comments/anger should not be directed towards VW or us. It was the ad agency that made these moves. I hope this also clarifies to fans and non-fans just how "Take Care" and the vw ad song are related.

This week, the band released their fourth album, Bloom, and are busy promoting it. They say they'll further address the controversy and "release a proper statement weeks from now when we don't have more interesting things to do/talk about." Watch the commercial above and stream "Take Care" here.
