There's A Theory That Elvis Faked His Death And Went On To Be An Extra In "Home Alone"

Yes, you read that correctly.

So there's an old YouTube video from 2007 titled "Proof that Elvis Presley is still alive." It has over a million views. And yes, it breaks down a scene from Home Alone.

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.

Well justtt before Gus Polinski (John Candy) offers to drive her...

...she's standing at the ticket counter, pleading her case and holding up the line. And there, standing two people behind her, is the King himself!

That's right! It's this man. The bearded extra.

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.

Could these be the same man over two decades apart?

He even moves like Elvis!
