In the commercial, Doug Pitt pokes fun at his life compared to his brother’s extravagant lifestyle.
Doug is shown outside his modest suburban home and takes us on a little guided tour of his house.
He proudly shows off his computer printer, saying, “This baby right here it scans, it prints, it faxes 1200dpi black and white, I’m gonna upgrade to the color but for now this baby gets it done”.
Pitt also makes lasagna, shows off his stereo system and shoots hoops in his driveway, but misses.
A voiceover reveals, “While his brother lives the life of a Hollywood A-lister, Doug’s life is a little different”.
As the 45-year-old Doug walks by his family van in his driveway, he says, “‘I like this car, it’s sporty, it’s stylish!”
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 is actually a very successful businessman, having set up the ServiceWorld Computer Center.
