He's watched his older brother Brad live in the unblinking glare of fame for 25 years. Now, Doug Pitt is getting his 15 minutes – and using them to make a difference.
Doug, who runs a family computer business in southwest Missouri, is featured in a new Virgin Mobile ad campaign in Australia that has since gone viral around the world. And he's using the attention to indulge another passion – for philanthropy.
"It's a little surreal, but it's fun," Doug tells NBC's Today show of his newfound celebrity. "This whole campaign was to be tongue in cheek and to have fun. And luckily, it's hit its mark."

Twenty-six years later, it's time for Ferris Bueller to take another day off.
In what's quickly becoming the most talked-out Super Bowl commercial of the year – a week before it even airs – Matthew Broderick will bring back his old Ferris Bueller character in a new ad for Honda this Sunday night during the NBC telecast.
Auto blog Jalopnik revealed the source of a teaser ad last Friday. So, Honda decided to release the extended version of the commercial online on Monday – and it's a two-minute-plus homage to Ferris Bueller's Day Off, the original 1986 film, with Broderick this time calling in sick to a film shoot and enjoying another day of slacking instead.
