November 09, 2014 Macaulay Culkin Responds to Death Hoax with ‘Weekend at Bernie’s Pic Actor-turned-musician Macaulay Culkin wants everyone to know he is alive and well, despite a recent Internet hoax that had many convinced he had died on Friday. Culkin and his band The Pizza Underground posted a few shots on their Instagram page. One photo shows a close-up of Culkin, with the caption, "We're on tour you silly people." Another pic paid homage to the 1989 comedy “Weekend at Bernie's,” in which two guys convince everyone their boss is still alive.
