YouTube Charlie Chaplin Viral Video With Time Traveler On Board

For fans of English comic actor and film director of the silent era “Charlie Chaplin”, there is no bigger fan then that of current Irish film maker George Clarke. In the next few days Halloween will be upon us and news of a YouTube viral video featuring Chaplin and a possible time traveler has come to our attention.

I have to say on watching the video along with George Clarke I cannot give any explanation to this mysterious piece of footage. On viewing the black and white video from 1928 it shows the premiere of Chaplins “The Circus.” Brenda at Mashable reported that, included in the footage is what seems to be lady quite happily walking on by The Grauman’s Chinese Theatre talking into a mobile phone. The lady is definitely gripping what appears to be a handset. Could this be a time-traveler?

Feast your eyes on the video and tell us what you think? Can you come up with another explanation? Let us know. To check out more on this log onto Mashable.

    That's my grandad, Albert. He was a psychic cross-dresser who could see into the future & knew what a stir this would cause 80 years on. Apparently, in his last will & testament he wrote : '' I tried, but failed, to make it in 1920s Hollywood so this was my only hope of my five minutes of fame, love..''
    Love you Gramps! Good to see you again, dear, but was black your most flattering colour ??

    Did it ever cross your mind that someone back then might think "Hey, I should pretend to be using a WIRELESS TELEPHONE, so people in the future that actually have them will be stumped!"

    No different to "Michael Jackson's ghost caught on camera at Neverland". They didn't have mobiles in the 20s, and if it's a time traveller from the future, what makes you think they'd still need to hold large objects to their heads in order to talk to people? She's more than likely just holding her hat. Some people apparently have far too little work to do…
