Traveling the world, knocking back copious amounts of alcoholic beverages, and pocketing $200,000 in the process -- doesn't sound much like hard work, does it?

But for one pair of lucky bastards this could soon become a full-time job -- well, for a year, anyway.

And it could be you!

That's right slackasses, so listen up. The nice folks at Chivas Regal Scotch Whisky are on a nationwide hunt for two Chivas Life Ambassadors. And what does this posh post entail? An exhausting twelve months roaming the globe in search of "the Chivas life."

The lucky winners will take part in a grueling year of jet-setting self-indulgence. In years past winners have bummed around Australia's Bondi Beach on a surfboard, swanned through South Africa on safari, and explored Jordan's ancient city of Petra on a camel.

But this is not a job for the faint hearted -- or lazy. Last year's winners also ran a sunrise marathon in Thailand and hiked along a remote section of the Great Wall of China.

And, organizers are quick to point out, this is a serious gig. Real work -- like interacting with international and domestic media, recording adventures online, hosting mentoring events, and attending Chivas Life events such as Elephant Polo and Snow Golf.

If you think you're equipped to handle the stress of snow golf, head to an open casting call at the swanky Chivas Life Tent (521 Michigan Avenue on Miami Beach) on Saturday, January 20, from noon to 4:00 p.m. Applicants must be at least 25 years old. Online applications are accpeted through March 30th. -Joanne Green

Keep Miami New Times Free... Since we started Miami New Times, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Miami, and we would like to keep it that way.

Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism.
