Internet Death Hoax of the Day: Macaulay Culkin is Alive, Channels 'Weekend At Bernie’s'

This past weekend, the Internet was tricked into believing that "Home Alone" star turned lead singer in a pizza-themed Velvet Underground cover band Macaulay Culkin, was found dead in his New York apartment.

The prankster linked to both a fake MSNBC news page, and a tribute page on Facebook, to help support the story, which got over 153,000 Facebook likes and 22,500 retweets.

But he was not in fact dead, and he proved it initially by taking a selfie with a bottle of soda.

He then took things to a whole other level in Sunday, as seen in the Tweet above, referencing the classic '80s movie about a dead, but not-quite-dead guy, "Weekend at Bernies."

Given the time of year, one might guess that Culkin's choice of food might also be in tribute to his famed character, Kevin McCallister, whose favorite food was plain cheese pizza.
