We covered lots of serious stuff today so here’s some silliness for you guys. Here’s the question being asked all over the interwebs. Did a Woman Travel Through Time to Attend a Charlie Chaplin Premier? Seriously.
Some pretty normally sane movie sites are covering this story like Cinematical and Moviefone as well as dozens of looney tunes sites. Heck, Roger Ebert (is he sane?) even Tweeted about it.
Here’s the story in a nutshell. There’s old footage from a Charlie Chaplin movie premiere where an older woman who may secretly be a man is walking down the street while talking on what may secretly be a cell phone all the way back in 1928.
Check out the vid:
I gotta’ admit that it if I saw someone walking down the street my first thought would be that they were talking on the phone but this seems like kinda’ flimsy evidence to jump to the conclusion of time travel to me but I’m just here to bring you the latest and greatest stories on the google machine. And besides “The Big Lebowski” and “In America,” “Time Bandits” might be my favorite movie of all time.
So…you seeing time travel here?
