Hi dacut-ga, and thanks for your question.

I too was unable to locate any information about who played this role
anywhere online after a long search.  I finally contacted the ad
agency that put the ad together.  According to Karin Schaer (see
e-mail below), Director of Marketing at TBWA/Chiat, Big Brother was
played by David Graham.  There doesn't seem to be a lot of information
out there on Mr. Graham.  I believe this is his entry at the Internet
Movie Database (IMDB):

You can also read more about him at his Wikipedia page:

The above page includes some information on his work as a character
actor and voice artist.
