Las Vegas Mayor Oscar Goodman said he has had discussions with executives of Beefeater gin and about being the company's newest corporate pitchman.

Goodman told the Las Vegas Review-Journal that the campaign would have to generate at least $100,000 and that all the proceeds would go to the city as a way to make up for revenue lost because of the recent tourism slump.

The Mayor's role could include public appearances on the company's behalf, as well as magazine advertisements or limited-edition bottles featuring Goodman's image.
