LOS ANGELES, Aug. 25 (UPI) -- The mock rock band Spinal Tap's new short film, "Stonehenge: 'Tis a Magic Place," is available for download exclusively on iTunes, its producers said.

Shorts International and INgrooves announced Tuesday it had released the clip in celebration of the 25th anniversary of the cult classic film, "This is Spinal Tap," starring Christopher Guest, Michael McKean and Harry Shearer.

"The 7-minute short marks iTunes' first original film, where Spinal Tap, having put Stonehenge on the map in their legendary song about the world heritage site, pay their first visit to the monument," the companies said in a news release.

"We're excited about this opportunity to partner with iTunes and INgrooves to distribute cutting-edge content to film lovers and Spinal Tap fans throughout the world," Carter Pilcher, chief executive of Shorts International, said in a statement.

"We all jumped at the opportunity to participate in a novel and ground-breaking way with Spinal Tap," added Robb McDaniels, president and chief executive officer of INgrooves. "The resulting short movie is simply spectacular and the culmination of months of hard work for all involved."
