Could a Siemens 1924 hearing aid explain Charlie Chaplin’s “The Circus” time traveler? In the Charlie Chaplin time travel video that’s gone viral, a filmmaker says he’s discovered a woman in the footage who is a time traveler on a cell phone – but maybe it was a Siemens hearing aid of the time.
Theories about Charlie Chaplin’s “The Circus” video included time travel, a batty old woman talking to herself, a woman holding ice to a toothache… and yes, a manufactured hoax.
But this video clip of the Siemens 1924 hearing aid could explain the Charlie Chaplin “The Circus” time traveler and finally put all the theories to rest.
First up, here’s the video that shows the slowed down and zoomed in footage of a woman who appears to be talking on a cell phone – the year, however, is 1928.
The second video clip shows the Siemen’s 1924 hearing aid, the small black device that had to be held to the ear – and yes, it looks like that could very well explain Charlie Chaplin’s time traveler.
Do you think the Siemen’s hearing aid is what the woman (or man… still not clear on that one!) is using in the video clip?
