Is there any way to get the title for a YouTube video once it has been removed?

For example, I'm looking for a video (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=chGl0_nFyqg) that was removed by the user. I'm pretty sure I can get an updated link for the video, if I'd known what it was in the first place.

Internet Archive comes up blank.

Any other ways to get the meta info?

I am not sure if this is what you're looking for but a google search of chGl0_nFyqg returns Magic Pad as the title.

When searching any of the Youtube video IDs (provided in the youtube link) on google it returns the videos titles so I would guess this one is right as well.
