’1984′ Anti-Hillary Ad Creator Reveals Self

The creator of the pro-Obama campaign “1984″ video that has since caused a sinewy, poli-bloggy stir has come forward. His name? Philip de Vellis, the Internet communications director for Sherrod Brown‘s 2006 Senate campaign, and who now works at Blue State Digital, a company created by members of Howard Dean‘s “Internet Team.”

Arianna Huffington, never one to let a Clooney-esque content opportunity pass her by, tracked him down and, naturally, got him to blog about it:

Hi. I’m Phil. I did it. And I’m proud of it. I made the “Vote Different” ad because I wanted to express my feelings about the Democratic primary, and because I wanted to show that an individual citizen can affect the process. There are thousands of other people who could have made this ad, and I guarantee that more ads like it–by people of all political persuasions–will follow. This shows that the future of American politics rests in the hands of ordinary citizens.
