Person behind the “Vote Different” Ad Reveals Himself

The mystery behind the 1984 video with Hillary Clinton playing the role of “Big Brother” is over. Phil de Vellis, aka “ParkRidge47”, has come forward to take credit for the video which has been viewed nearly two million times on YouTube.

De Vellis says that he created the ad on a Sunday afternoon in his apartment using his own computer equipment. His purpose was to prove that “an individual citizen can affect the process.” According to de Vellis, the enormous amount of media attention that his video has received “shows that the future of American politics rests in the hands of ordinary citizens.”

“This ad was not the first citizen ad, and it will not be the last,” claims de Vellis. “The game has changed.”
