These M6 Mobile by Orange ads show just how distracting texting in school can be. Although it's pretty hard to fight cellphone use in schools, these ads make a pretty humorous case against students texting in class.

To make its argument, the ads show extremely ancient-looking textbooks with messed up lessons about the Pythagoras Theorem, which is more about a love triangle between Andy and Barbara versus a real geometry lesson, or an excerpt about Neil Armstrong, which is derailed by texts and turns his trip to the moon into an adventure to the washroom instead. Although a series of static print ads might not be the most effective way to deter texting in school for good, the M6 Mobile by Orange ads sure are funny.
