TWO brothers believe their grandfather is holding a modern-day mobile phone in a photo dating back to World War II – which they bizarrely claim may be proof he’s a time-traveller.
In a video with nearly 16,000 Likes, one TikTok user is claiming their ancestor was like “Captain America” after finding a photo that seems to show the young soldier holding a bucket and an object with a striking similarity to an iPhone.
TikTok-Benutzer Jimmy the Filmmaker posted the video on his account with 10,000 Anhänger, but many viewers are sceptical of the far-fetched theory.
Ein Zuschauer kommentierte, ”It’s a mirror, often used to flash Morse code.”
Another said the alleged iPhone was a military shaving mirror, as the man in the photo also had a towel over his shoulder and a can of water.
Others were quick to defend Jimmy’s farfetched claim, with one user commenting, “all the technology we are using today existed thousands of years ago.”

The man in the photo is Jimmy’s grandfather, who he affectionately calls “Papa George”.
Jimmy is one of many TikTok users that claim to witness time travellers – or even predict the future themselves.
Im Oktober, one TikTok account predicted a giant asteroid would destroy half of America, and new life would be found on distant planets.
