The creator of the famous anti-Hillary Clinton ad mimicking the famous 1984 Apple spot was outed this week on HuffingtonPost.com. Phil de Vellis, the creator of the ad, subsequently resigned from his job at a political interactive consultancy, Blue State Digital.
Vellis claims he made the spot on his own time, with his own equipment, and not at the request of the Barack Obama campaign, which is plugged at the end of the spot and for whom Blue State Digital works.
The ad was posted on YouTube on March 5, and has received over 2 million views and nearly 5,000 comments.
This is sure to be an interesting (and looooooong) political season.
