Doug Pitt, Brad Pitt's younger brother, gets the celebrity treatment in Virgin Mobile's new ad.

As Brad Pitt's younger brother, Doug Pitt may share the family genes, but he has no Angelina Jolie and no charmed life as a global movie icon. So Virgin Mobile Australia decided to highlight the spectacular ordinariness of Doug in a two-minute spot. "Virgin believes in a fair go for all," says the voiceover.

The commercial is making the viral rounds. It isn't much to see -- and that's the point. Doug nails the part of the uncool suburbanite.

See Doug listen to '70s music in his man cave. See Doug admire his van and printer. See Doug cook. The second most-famous Pitt, as the ad declares, sure makes life beneath the A-list seem absolutely mundane. And kinda funny, too.
