So, it’s been kind of a confusing story to follow, but Andy Kaufman’s brother announced that Andy faked his death to escape the spotlight, is still alive and living in hiding, and has a daughter. Then the daughter materializes. Then it’s revealed that she’s an actress and it’s all an elaborate hoax.
Or is it?
My theory is that it’s a hoax inside a reality inside a hoax. The truth is that Kaufman did fake his death. And the whole thing with the actress today? That’s part of the hoax – Andy hired her to reveal that she was his daughter and then to get herself outed. The hoax is a hoax intended to remind everyone that Andy is still dead when he isn’t. And to give him yet another maniacal laugh at everyone’s expense.
Just remember – you heard it here first.
