Time Traveler decides to make cameo in Chaplin film

I know what you're thinking, and I couldn't agree more. However, this story is top news on MSNBC. (I'm starting to think maybe they're not all that bright....)

So here's the deal: some Charlie Chaplin mega-fan was watching Chaplin's 1928 film "The Circus" one day when he caught a glimpse of something that made him do a double take. He rewound the film and watched the scene again. Then again. And again.

What did he see? Well, he saw someone walking through the shot talking on a cell phone. In 1928. I repeat: A CELL PHONE. In 1928. Yes indeedy. His conclusion: time traveler.

Of course! It's so obvious.

You can see the clip from the film below (Note: There is no sound, so don't freak out and think your speakers are broken.)

Now, what I want to know, is where are Doc and Marty?


  1. LOL Really? Time traveling. I can't wait until they actually get that figured out.

  2. How do you time travel on an already existing piece of film? Did they happen to time travel, looking like a eskimo-hobobtw, onto the set of the Chaplin film as they were filming it?!? If so, how come no one said anything...Or is this some sort of weird time travelers experiment...the world may never know.

  3. It is weird. I still don't know what to make of it.
