Elvis Presley, for those who aren't aware, died in 1977 at the age of 42. A popular conspiracy theory, however, claims that he actually faked his death. Some believe he's still alive today.

Home Alone, meanwhile, was released in 1990, 13 years after Elvis's alleged death. That would make Elvis 55 when it was released.

Hard to believe? Decide for yourself.

Remember this scene? Mrs. McCallister is at the airport frantically trying to book a flight home to Chicago.

Here's what Elvis looked like in 1975, two years before his alleged death and 15 years before his alleged Home Alone cameo. He's roughly 40 years old here.

And for comparison's sake, here's Elvis with a beard in 1969 for a western he starred in called Charro!. He was roughly 34 here.
