Charlie Chaplin’s grandson rocks out

Call him the Little Tramp, Twice Removed. Here is Spencer Chaplin, the grandson of Charlie Chaplin, playing the guitar as he celebrates his 18th birthday by entertaining family and friends at a party. Is there... a resemblance? It's hard to see it. Maybe if one dressed Spencer Chaplin up in a baggy dark suit and cane, and shaved his beard down to a little moustache, and gave him that old-timey pale facepaint they used in the silent movies, one could see it. Then again, EVERYONE looks like Charlie Chaplin if they wear that getup. As far as we know, no comparable images exist of Charlie Chaplin stripped to the waist and playing the electric guitar. Perhaps we should just let Spencer Chaplin be Spencer Chaplin.
