Want some pre-Halloween chills?

Check out the YouTube video burning up the Internet showing a woman who appears to be talking on – could it be a cell phone? – way back in 1928!

Spotted by filmmaker George Clarke, the clip is from a DVD extra documenting the premiere of Charlie Chaplin's The Circus.

Chaplin was nominated for an Academy Award for acting, writing, directing and producing The Circus, but took home a "Special Award" instead after he was taken out of the running for the other awards.
