He shows off his minivan, his man cave (which consists of a pair of headphones), and his black and white printer that also faxes and scans.

And at the end of the day, Doug basically comes across as the most well-adjusted man on the planet. And here we are writing about Virgin Mobile, so everybody wins.

Here's the whole ad:
