10. Eminem also died in a car crash, and was replaced by a clone (not true… probably)

11. Art Attack was cancelled because Neil Buchanan died of a heart attack (thankfully not true)

12. The kid who sang “They’re gonna taste great” in the Frosties ad killed himself shortly after it began to air (also not true, he’s grand)
