first recorded mobile phone call?

[Audio: snappy music; Subtitled: English]

I haven’t decided if this is for real — there’s some odd details that would be hard to reproduce, such as the snow plowed off the sidewalks into the street (the poor horses!). But the umbrella is full of win, and the notion of recording such an audio based experiment with SILENT MOVIES just tickles my funnybone. I also like the fact that everyone in the clip is a woman.

It was featured in UK’s Daily Telegraph last year.
