The man behind the viral video ad that casts Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton, D-N.Y., as "Big Sister" in a mash-up remake of Apple Computer's "1984" ad has been unmasked. Phil de Vellis, an employee of an Internet strategy firm that has a contract with the presidential campaign of Sen. Barack Obama, D-Ill., said he created the film on his own time and without input from the campaign. De Vellis resigned his position after he learned his identity would be revealed on a blog.
