In April, Brad Pitt taped a commercial with a sumo wrestler, and now it’s out. Brad plays the assistant to a sumo wrestler in this Spike Jonze-directed ad for Japanese SoftBank, a telecommunications company.

The National Enquirer would like us to believe that Brad Pitt snubbed out his younger brother Doug Pitt’s political career by urging him not to run for Missouri Congress, even though he probably would have won the election.

Blah, blah, blah. The important thing is—Brad Pitt has a brother! Why weren’t we already stalking him?!
