      I don't think it's a bad play at all unless he's really tight with his c-bets, BUT what's really bad is doing it while you have ~70bb stack. Your implied odds are lower all the way through and you're committed far too easily to the pot once you start bluffing. Not rebuying is just too easy of a mistake to correct, make sure you're not missing out on money for no good reason.

      Hope it helps.
