Inside the Actors Studio’s James Lipton encourages teens to think before they text in a hilarious new series of PSAs aimed at curbing mobile-phone harassment among young people. In the ads, Lipton and his magnificent beard implore four different text-happy teens to “give it a ponder” before sending gossipy messages, starting snide rumors, or, in one young man’s case, texting “pics of his junk” to his Twitter-addicted girlfriend.

AdWeek has the entire Lipton-and-beard-starring PSA campaign (with print and video) at its AdFreak blog.

(Thanks, Jezebel.)
