Beat 360° 8/20/09

Ready for today's Beat 360°? Everyday we post a picture – and you provide the caption and our staff will join in too. Tune in tonight at 10pm to see if you are our favorite! Here is the 'Beat 360°' pic:

Zack Neil rides his ash tray bike in down town Amsterdam on August 19, 2009 in Amsterdam, Netherlands. Zack Neil informs inhabitants and tourists about the negative effects of cigarette butts and chewing gum on the environment. The Central Amsterdam government has recently started with this awareness campaign and in the Dutch city of Rotterdam the 90 euro (128 US Dollars) fine has occasionally been handed out. It takes more than 10 years to break down a cigarette butt and up to 50 years for chewing gum. (Photo: Michel Porro/Getty Images)

Have fun with it. We're looking forward to your captions! Make sure to include your name, city, state (or country) so we can post your comment.

    Due to advertising cutbacks the Marlboro Man was recently replaced by this guy. Speaking off the record the Marlboro Man mumbled "But seriously that guy's all hat and no horse!)

    Due to the high price of oil and gas, the Marlboro Man gets a well needed makeover, including a smokin' tricycle.

    Crossing the street in Amsterdam Obama spots the butt machine tracking him down. He spits out his gum and throws down his butt hoping no one had noticed. He then realized that as he stepped on the burning cigarette in his wad of bubble gum he was stuck in the middle of the street.

    In a renewed effort to curb teen smoking, Amsterdam has begun a campaign to make the habit appear increasingly ridiculous.
