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.

    Documentary “We Were Once “

    Documentary Narrator: Zack Neil in 1988 formed the Netherland group “Men In White suites With Butts On Head Group” (Sounds better when said in Dutch). “Men In White suites With Butts On Head Group” Flourished throughout the Netherlands for two years, but then in 1991 an American group was formed called “The Blue Man Group” just as “Men In White suites With Butts On Head Group” was going to dominate America. The tour was canceled and the group broke up. Still to this day Zack Neil rides in his costume everyday with the costumes of the former members in a stage prop bike along the streets of Amsterdam screaming “why blue man group…..why?????”
