**2/4/2010, CHICAGO -** The revolutionary collective-buying website [Groupon](http://www.groupon.com) already enhances people’s lives by offering a daily deal on the best local goods, services and cultural events. Now we’ll be going one step further – from enhancing someone’s life, to dominating it.
Groupon is proud to announce the [LIVE OFF GROUPON](http://www.liveoffgroupon.com) challenge. One chosen online applicant (call him or her “The Groupawn”) will be challenged to live exclusively off Groupons for an entire year, blogging regularly about their experiences.
The Groupawn will be required to put their savings in escrow, cut up their credit cards, and surrender the keys to their home and loved ones. They will be stripped of the trappings of routine, as well as their clothing, and released back into the world in a suit made entirely out of Groupons and a few electronic gadgets. If they can successfully live exclusively off of an unlimited supply of Groupons for ONE ENTIRE YEAR they will earn an apology stipend of $100,000.
Groupon CEO and Founder Andrew Mason will personally review the applicants, calling the campaign “an exciting opportunity that I haven’t really entirely thought through.”
As redemption of many Groupons requires social necessities such as tax and tip, as well as lesser concerns such as transportation and shelter, the Groupawn will be forced to rely on the kindness of strangers and non-rabid urban animals. Will Groupon subscribers rally around their chosen one, offering couches, showers and inevitably required first-aid assistance? This will largely depend on their personality, resourcefulness and how many important fish they can name.*
