Is It Possible To Rank Spun Content?

I would like to follow the theory that if you can get 20 or so niche relevant posts ranking in the top 100 on google to link to your page, then that page should rank in the top 10 on google.

Has anyone tried this with spun content?

If I buy 20 PBN posts that are spun, will I be able to rank those posts in the top 100 on google?
