Philip de Vellis(ParkRidge47)のインタビューが上がっていた。例のビデオ作った人ね。

Although it only received 20 votes on the VideoSift, The Hillary Clinton Youtube user created attack advert was viewed 3 Million times. That is enough views to be interviewed by Steve Grove…a Youtube Politics correspondent?

自分でもblog立ち上げてたみたい。

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.

Obama支持の民主党員だが、Hillaryが当選するなら、それはそれで彼女を応援すると言っている。

Let me be clear: I am a proud Democrat, and I always have been. I support Senator Obama. I hope he wins the primary. (I recognize that this ad is not his style of politics.) I also believe that Senator Clinton is a great public servant, and if she should win the nomination, I would support her and wish her all the best.

勤務先は選挙キャンペーンへの技術供与を請け負っており、Obama陣営もクライアントの一人だったそうだ。が、ビデオの製作は会社とも顧客とも全く関係なく、個人的に行ったと釈明している。クビにされたと報じられていたが、彼は周囲への悪影響を恐れて自ら退職したと述べている。

I’ve resigned from my employer, Blue State Digital, an internet company that provides technology to several presidential campaigns, including Richardson’s, Vilsack’s, and — full disclosure — Obama’s. The company had no idea that I’d created the ad, and neither did any of our clients. But I’ve decided to resign anyway so as not to harm them, even by implication.

何度も強調されているのは、これが有権者による新しい形の選挙運動である点。

This ad was not the first citizen ad, and it will not be the last. The game has changed.

コメント数が447と半端ではない。コメント欄だけで18頁もある。1ページ目だけをざっと見たところでは、余計なことしやがってという批判もあったが、概ね支持されているようだ。

この事件、日本ではちっとも話題になってない。UGCはアニメのMADばかりだ。
