Living off of nothing but bitcoin for a year... Great publicity stunt? #bitcoin

Awhile back, Groupon had a contest and customer who lived off of nothing but Groupon for an entire year. He went around the country using different groupons and when he couldn't use them he relied on the groupon fans for help. I think if the bitcoin community did something like this it would bring much needed good publicity and public awareness to bitcoins. I also think we'd see a rise in bitcoin worth, and with more people hopefully more stability? Do you think the community is established enough for one person to succesfully live off of only spending bitcoins? Either staying in one place or traveling across the country/world using only things purchased with actual bitcoins? What are everyones thoughts on this?
