ROUGH CUT. NO REPORTER NARRATION Hundreds of people gathered together dressed as Charlie Chaplin's "The Tramp" character in Switzerland on Sunday (April 16), for a world record attempt for the largest gathering of Chaplin Tramps. Six hundred and sixty two people donned moustaches, hats, and grabbed sticks to help embody the character, following an Easter egg hunt. The event was organised by and at the world's only museum dedicated to the famous director, Chaplin's World. It coincided with Chaplin's 128th birthday and the museum's first anniversary since opening. The museum's managing director and Charlie Chaplin's son, Eugene Chaplin, said it was his father's humanist values and the contemporaneous messages in his movies which kept the character so popular.
