It turns out Macaulay Culkin isn’t dead. In fact, he’s alive and making ’80s movie jokes about reports of his early demise.

The actor and musician became the latest celebrity to fall victim to a death hoax on Saturday, when false reports of his passing began to circulate on the Internet.

The 34-year-old responded by posting a parody picture on the Instagram page of his band, The Pizza Underground.

The photo pays tribute to the 1989 comedy “Weekend at Bernie’s,” in which two guys shuffle their boss’ body around to make people believe he’s alive. Culkin included the caption, “Weekend at Bernies with @anchovywarhol #greenroom.”

The former child star, known for roles in the first two “Home Alone” movies, also tweeted a photo of himself on the band’s Twitter feed along with the caption, “We’re on tour you silly people / @anchovywarhol’s.”

“Weekend at Bernie’s” starred Brat Pack member Andrew McCarthy and Jonathan Silverman as insurance company workers who discover their boss, Bernie, is dead.
