Zach Braff Announces He's Still Alive on YouTube

Don’t worry 'Garden State' and 'Scrubs' fans, Zach Braff is not dead. Twitter went crazy with tweets saying that the television and film star had died after a fake Web site built by prankster Chris Laganella went viral.

Laganella had left the page up a while ago thinking that no one but a few friends would see it. However, the rumor became so prevalent that Zach Braff posted a YouTube video declaring that in fact he’s still alive.

The video was a humorous way to combat the rumor and, after Miley Cyrus’ recent attempt at YouTube declarations, the ‘Zach Braff is not dead’ video came as some welcome comic relief.
