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."

Culkin 1, Death Hoax Prankster 0.
