DRIVERS in Pialba got a Valentine's Day suprise on Thursday morning with Charlie Chaplin standing on the corner of Main St and Torquay Rd with roses and balloons.

The silent movie star was actually local street entertainer Ian Dinte, who was doing promotional work for Blooms and Petals Florists, on what will likely be their busiest day of the year.

Ian said out of the 40 characters he plays, he chose Charlie Chaplin for Valentine's Day because "he was a ladies' man".

A quote from Charlie Chaplin himself shows Ian probably made the right choice in costume for Thursday: "what do you want a meaning for? Life is a desire, not a meaning."
