Cigarette Bin

My purpose is to find a fun theory to convince Smokers to throw their cigarettes not on the floor but in a bin. My idea is to paint of yellow and white a normal dust bin with ashtray so that it looks like a cigarette. The message should be clear: this looks like a cigarette and it is for cigarettes. On top of the dust bin, where the ashtray is I would put a cover with sensors that react to heat and pressure underneath. When the sensors react a recorder inside the dust bin will play the sound of a person screaming with pain for the burn. That would scare people at first and then would make them laugh. Maybe some people would even light a new cigarette just to try it again, so it will be helpful even for their health. One cigarette less in their lungs, and in mine that must wait near them the bus!
