Weekend at Macaulay's? The Internet was abuzz with rumors that actor Macaulay Culkin had died on Saturday, Nov. 8. Fortunately, the news was all a part of an elaborate death hoax, and the Home Alone actor, 34, took to his band's Twitter page to prove it. 

The NYC-based rock band The Pizza Underground, tweeted several pictures of Culkin from its official handle, one with him smiling and holding up a soda with the caption, "We're on tour you silly people / @anchovywarhol's."

The former child actor also posed in a group shot, but his best picture of the day found him recreating the 1989 cult classic comedy Weekend at Bernie's, in which two guys pretend their boss Bernie is still alive in order to save their own lives. 

"Weekend at bernies with @anchovywarhol #greenroom," the band's handle captioned the photo of Culkin, jokingly playing dead in the arms of his bandmate. 

The group also retweeted a fan who attended their show at the Fun Fun Fun Fest in Austin, Texas, who wrote, "Macauley's first words: "I'm alive!" #pizzaunderground #FFFfest."
