Is that a time traveler chatting on a cell phone in an old Charlie Chaplin film from 1928? James Williams gets two possible explanations on what’s happening in this viral YouTube video:

Fun watching the time traveler video. A real time traveler captured on film made in 1928, OR, someone on a movie set captured on film pretending to be talking on a wireless device? It almost looks like an old style black phone receiver they are holding up to their ear, not the look of a modern-day cell phone with a rectangular shape. For someone back then to be simulating using a cell phone would in itself be special, a testament of the human imagination, a portent of things to come. The future is encoded in our DNA.
