Time traveller spotted at Charlie Chaplin premiere?

Has the first real evidence of time travelling been found? A video on YouTube seems to think so.

cell phone in Chaplin film 604x341

On the DVD extras for Charlie Chaplin's 'The Circus', a woman is spotted in the background at the movie's premiere in 1928 and appears to be talking on a mobile phone.
Stunned by what he saw, Irish filmmaker George Clarke consulted experts on his find, and has since posted it on YouTube. He claims that the video has not been tampered with in any way.

The footage does seem to show a lady nattering on a mobile phone, but if you thought your phone reception was bad at normal times, we hate to think what it would have been like in the ‘20s.

Cynics have scoffed at the footage, asking, if you were a time traveller, would you openly show off the amazing gadget? Others have asked why you would go to a Chaplin premiere if you could go back to any point in time?

Clarke replied, "Who says the person in question went back to see the Chaplin premiere? How about, the person went back to an earlier period and got stuck there or was in town doing something else and just happened to stroll on by."

Have a look and see for yourselves.

    Well, assuming the footage hasn't been tampered with, why would a time traveller go through all the trouble to dress for the time period, only to jabber away on a cell phone?

    As for the whole "why go to a Charlie Chaplin premiere", why the hell not? mabe the time traveller already went back to see all the cool stuff like the Battle of Troy or whatever.

    And who would be there to talk to?

    Moreover what kind of technology would be used to make a call in a time without satellites or cell masts?

    if it's real - who the fuck would she be calling?
    she was probably scratching her self. also why the fuck would she be talking in public?
    if this video has NOT been tampered with thats a pretty stupid cell phone considering the advancement in technology it should be smaller or very well hidden.But by the way she is walking with "her cell phone" leads me to think she was scratching her self or this video is fake
