Harry Shum Jr Thumb Wars
Watch to see which of Harry's thumbs wins!

Glee heartthrob Harry Shum Jr. puts his thumbs to work for a good cause.

Harry stars in the PSA, where he encourages teens to join the good fight in regards to the danger of texting and driving.

Teens who sign up (you have until August 2) at www.dosomething.org/thumbwars will receive two pairs of super-powered thumb socks (like the ones Harry wears in the videos) to share with friends or family who text and drive.

I prefer my thumbs sock free, so there will no texting and driving for me.

  1. I think this effort by Mr. Shum will help young drivers (and hopefully adults too) get the message. It has to start with the end user, the driver…deciding not to partake in distracted driving and this will help drive that message home.

    I also decided to do something about teen (and adult) distracted driving after my three year old daughter was nearly run down right in front of me by a texting driver. Instead of a shackle that locks down phones and alienates the user (especially teens) I built a tool for teens and their parents called OTTER that is a simple, GPS based, texting auto reply app for smartphones. It also silences call ringtones while driving unless you have a bluetooth enabled. I think if we can empower the individual then change will come to our highways now and not just our laws.
