Video: Cell Phone Spotted at 1928 Premiere of Charlie Chaplin's "The Circus"?

Posted: October 26th, 2010 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
Video: Cell Phone Spotted at 1928 Premiere of Charlie ChaplinSubmit Comment
One of the movies in the Charlie Chaplin DVD collection is "The Circus," which comes with some bonus material including footage from the 1928 premiere.

That footage shows a woman walking and possibly talking on a cell phone. While we don't actually see the phone, her hand is next to her ear and is in the familiar cell phone grip. When she slows down, you can clearly see her talking, despite the fact that nobody is around her.

George Clarke, who found this footage, believes that there can only be one explanation. The woman is a time-traveler. After doing a bit of research, I found out that small hearing aids already existed in 1928, which may mean that the woman was simply holding the hearing aid to her ear. This doesn't explain why she's talking though.

Check out the video below and let us know what you think is happening in the footage.

I don't mean to be a party pooper... but, who on earth would she be talking to? First of all, the tele communication techniques have changed, so cell phones wouldn't even have worked with the old technology.

I have an explanation. He must have just recorded this with some old camera. Just another phony like the Bigfoot footage where "it" is walking

Well for one thing there wouldn't be any cell phone reception


But intrestingly, there is the case of the Black Knight Satellite, apparently it's signals were being transmitted in the 20's a good 40 years before the Americasn put there first sattelite up into sapce, both the Americans and Russians deny it is theres, and no one really knows how that go there.

Did we really need an 8 minute video on this?

And why would they time travel back to that? just to get on camera, kinda of dumb if you ask me.

Also the better question is: is the zebra black with white stripes or white with black stripes?

really? you lot really think if someone was able to time travel, they would not be able to make a f*cking call because there are no satellites?

I love that he threw in cross dressing as further proof that its from the future...lol- The big point already mentioned is that cell phone towers did not exist then- but, hey, if he was a time traveler- and time was ever conceived/discovered as a location that could be traveled to- couldn't there be a device probably much more easily invented that could talk to or from it? I mean once you jump the big hurdle of discovering/inventing time travel-what’s the big deal inventing a way of communicating to or from it...? (that's what 30 years of watching sci-fi has taught me anyways)Anyways-if it was a time traveler he/she would have grabbed this footage out of this DVD release before it was authored to the public- That’s time traveling cover-up ops 101...You want the truth- the REAL explanation- I think crazy people have always walked around big cities talking into things and to themselves. The cellphone just slightly justified a practice that was already a habit for many people incapable of objective/rational thought. [sound familiar? 8 minute conspiracy viral video guy]

everyone: skip to 2:30 to avoid the boring ass scottish commentary.
Not sure what the device is, but it's clearly not a mobile phone as they weren't yet invented.
Could be a hearing aid, a musical toy, a seashell, who cares really?

You registered just to say something that has already been said? Why is she talking back to a hearing aid? In the future they probably call cell phones: "Hearing Aids"...

good thing is that even in the future the man walks in front

Its her collar. She spotted the (gigantic 1920s) camera and didnt want to pass in front of it. The guy she was with kept walking, she pulled up her thick black coller from under her coat (compare length to the other side, it would easily cover her ear) to cover her face, and she was talking to the guy who left her behind. Done. For the record I wanted it to be time travel so I'm just as upset as you are.

She must've had sh*tty reception in making her f*cking call, since sattelites hadn't been invented yet, f*cknut (the guy showing us this bullsh*t footage).

Go f*ck a sheep and call her your sister, f*cknut.

"It is not an AM/FM radio 'cause, obviously, it's 1928."


What a f*cking idiot. I love that this jackass askes over a hundred people for an explanation and who comes up with it? Alex! Fantastic work buddy.

thats bull sh*t, how can she be talking when sound wasn't invented.
JayDee writes:
on October 27th, 2010 at 3:15:57 AM

There is a perfectly logical explanation for this. That is the iPhone 7 that she's holding to her ear. She downloaded the time travel app off the app market, but she downloaded the "lite" version because she didn't want to pay $9.99 for the full version, cheap bitch, and the only place available to go was to chaplains movie premiere in 1928. makes sense.

i cant wait to be able to travel back in time so i can go back to 2 weeks before george clark is born and deliver a swift kick right to his mothers protruding, child-bearing stomach and hopefully abort that sucker right there. f*ck yourself man

You're all idiots for assuming that we will still have satellite and celltowers for mobile phones when Time Travel is an actual possibility.
