We have some strange news today as Irish independent filmmaker George Clarke claims that time travel is real. He has gone public with his take on recently released DVD footage of a 1928 Charlie Chaplin film called The Circus. He claims there is a time traveler caught on film.
While it doesn’t seem very plausible, George Clarke is convinced that the oddly dressed individual from the scene is holding a mobile phone to his or her ear, which clearly didn’t exist in 1928. He says, “I believe I’m the first person to find something quite unusual from a bit of film footage from 1928,” which can be found on the DVD in the extras menu in Documents, under The Hollywood Premiere.
Video after the jump!
The footage in question is apparently real and is not part of the film. It features actual members of the public in 1928 including this mysterious time traveler caught on film. Clarke says:
The only conclusion I can come to — which sounds absolutely ridiculous I’m sure, to some people — is it’s a time traveler. When you’re looking at a bit of 1928 footage with an old woman … on a mobile phone, it’s kind of strange. You can’t explain it.
That’s the only conclusion you can draw from this? I mean YEAH for imagination, but why would someone see this video and automatically assume the person is a time traveler? It seems like a really far-fetched explanation and many other things seem more likely such as:
1-Maybe the person had an itchy ear.
2-Perhaps the person had a headache.
3-Maybe there was a loud noise.
People want to believe in something as miraculous as time travel, so it’s no wonder that news about this time traveler caught on film nonsense is topping search engines everywhere. But really?
The video has over 1.5 million views on YouTube. Here it is with George Clarke explaining his reasoning:
