Discovery Networks Explains Chaplin’s Time Traveler Video

by Dan Koelsch

Last week we brought you the story of the “Charlie Chaplin Time Traveler“. Footage from 1928 showed a woman who was holding something up to her ear, and filmmaker George Clarke layed out his case for why he thinks she’s a time traveler with a cell phone. Discovery Networks decided to take it on in the latest video in their YouTube “…Explained” series. Watch after the break.




We mentioned in our original article that one of the most common explanation for the object was that it was a hearing aid, and a few blogs followed up their coverage of the video by “confirming” that was the case. While it was fun to speculate, I’m sure no one (probably even Clarke) really believed any sci-fi occurrence was behind the interesting video.
