Hundreds have gathered in Switzerland for a world record of the largest number of people dressed as Charlie Chaplin's most famous character "The Tramp."

The event celebrated Charlie Chaplin's 128th birth anniversary and was organized by and at the world's only museum dedicated to the director.

Totally 662 participants were given a moustache, a stick and a hat to help them embody “The Tramp".

The museum officials say the humanist and universal values as well as Chaplin's messages in his movies are the reasons that still make the character so popular today.
