Today he was showing the city's recreational side by playing softball at Eisner Park.
His other stops include the U of I campus, art theater, downtown and more.
The video will quickly take people on a tour across town, including some of the mayor's favorite spots.
"I still play a little softball. And as I said, I love this, you know, Eisner Park is really special to me. I love this ballpark, so I thought I'd try to get a little bit of that in there, into the video," said Gerard.
Gerard hopes the video will be finished in a few months.
He says it'll be shown on the city's website and cable channel. He also hopes it goes viral on YouTube.
