Brad Pitt - Brad Pitt's Brother Stars In Hilarious New Advert

Brad Pitt has proven he's no slouch when it comes to comedy, though it seems it runs in the family. His younger brother Doug stars in a hilarious new commercial on Australian television for 'Virgin Mobile', poking fun at his own lifestyle, compared to his superstar brother's.
The ad begins with an awkward looking Doug outside his modest suburban home, with a soundtrack not unlike that from Mtv's 'Cribs' playing in the background. After wiping his feet, Doug takes viewers on a guided tour of his home. He proudly boasts of his fancy PC printer, saying, "This baby right here it scans, it prints, it faxes 1200dpi black and white, I'm gonna upgrade to the colour but for now this baby gets it done". A voiceover reveals, "While his brother lives the life of a Hollywood A-lister, Doug's life is a little different", before cutting to the 45-year-old missing a basketball throw on his front drive. The voiceover adds, "Virgin Mobile believe in a fair go for all and want to give Doug a taste of his brother's lifestyle, starting with his first ever celebrity endorsement".
Doug - who lives with his family in Springfield, Missouri - is actually a successful businessman, having set up the ServiceWorld Computer Center. He was the one-time chairman of the Greater Springfield Chamber of Commerce.
