I have a huge chunk of data on my hard disk which I'd like to give away to someone else. Unlike me, this other guy has a lot of available storage space on his Google Drive. Thus, uploading the data to my Google Drive and then sharing it with him is impossible (and isn't either really my objective: I want to give it to him not share with him). Is there a way for me to upload the data directly to his Google Drive other than by signing in to his account?

With that much data to transfer I can see why it will not all fit into a default sized Google Drive. All I can say is you either need to sign into your friends account or consider an alternative.
ADrive offers free 14-day trials for 50GB and up, so you can sign up for one of these and use the free trial instead of your friends Google Drive. I cannot, however, grantee that you are under no obligation from the trials, because I have not tried one. Be sure to read the agreement.
If all else fails you could get a flash drive and send it snail-mail.
Yes, it is very possible. Here is how:
It may look complicated, but it's actually much simpler than you might think. I use this for shipping very large amounts of data around. The fact Google Drive has a maximum file size of 10Gb helps too.
