Some people believe that Andy faked his own death and is still alive today.
"I have lung cancer." :-D
~ Andy Kaufman
No one believed he was really sick and many believe he's alive today. He was obsessed with the "Elvis Lives" concept and decided to try it himself after talking with hoaxer Alan Abel, who successfully faked his death and had his obituary published in the NY Times. He can be found on Twitter, Myspace and Facebook under various names and was the subject of the 1999 film, "Man on the Moon" starring Jim Carrey and the R.E.M. song of the same name.
