Brad Pitt is not the only member of his family to be natural in front of the camera! The actor's brother, Doug Pitt, is currently playing in an advertisement for "6ix", a publication of Missouri's Mother's Brewing. This ad, which draws attention to Doug's charity, parodies the iconic "What in the box?" Scene from Brad's film Se7en.
As in David Fincher's 1995 film, this version of the G-rated scene centers around Doug, 52, posing this well-known question as Detective David Mills, the character represented by his famous brother. "What's in the box?" Cries Pitt's youngest brother. "Tell me what's in the mailbox!"
As the fans of the original film know, the box contained the severed head of Mills' wife, Tracy, played by Brad's old flame, Gwyneth Paltrow. In the trade, however, the vessel holds the new Doin 'Good orange wheat beer from Mother's Brewing.
The headquarters of Mother's Brewing Company is located in the hometown of the Pitt brothers in Springfield, Missouri. According to the ad description on YouTube, Doug, described as "another brother of Springfield" and a "good guy", inspired the new advertising through his philanthropic activities.
Pitt, a lesser-known organization, founded Care to Learn, a nonprofit organization based in Springfield that aims to meet the emerging health, hunger and hygiene needs of students in the surrounding area so that they can succeed in school. Mother's Brewing Company said it would donate a portion of each sale of Doin 'Good to this organization.
Doug is also a goodwill ambassador for the United Republic of Tanzania and is director of WorldServe International, a charitable organization working for the supply of clean water in East Africa.
Believe it or not, it's not the first time Doug makes fun of his relationship with a Brad, 55 years old. Doug was previously spokesman for Virgin Mobile Australia, describing The Most Famous Second Pitt, a nod to his likeness and connection. to 11 stars from the ocean. The initial web video went viral and collected more than 1,200,000 visits to YouTube during its first week. The campaign then became the most successful Virgin Mobile announcement in history.
