Fun Finds: Woman Travels Through Time for Charlie Chaplin Premiere?

Maybe it's because today just happens to be the 25th anniversary of the date that Marty McFly travels back in time in Back to the Future (it also happens to be the date that a splendid new Blu-ray/DVD collection featuring all three Back to the Future movies has hit shelves), but people seem to be in the mood to discuss a little time travel. A new video has popped up online, claiming to be part of the special features on a Charlie Chaplin DVD. The video shows people back in 1928 heading to celebrate the premiere of Charlie Chaplin's latest film, only one person stands out more than the rest.

'Back to the Future'

A new video being passed around shows a woman walking down the street in 1928 with what appears to be a cell phone in her hand. The maker of the video claims to have shown this to hundreds of people, and no one seems to have an explanation as to what she could be holding in her hand. Looking at the video, it appears she's definitely holding something, and it also looks like she's speaking into whatever it is she's holding, leading genre geeks to claim she's a time traveler who's speaking to her friends in the future (or other time travelers) via a device that does not need a cell tower to work.
Naturally, that's an absurd explanation, and one that makes more sense might have to do with an early hearing device (yes, they existed back then and also were shaped like cell phones) and the fact that maybe this woman is jabbering to herself or trying to hear for something. Nevertheless, in the spirit of Back to the Future Day, it is nice to imagine a future where people are able to travel back to the 1920s to scope out a Charlie Chaplin premiere. If such a thing does exist, then let us all hope that we live to see it for ourselves.
Watch the video below and let us know what you think this is all about.
