We have all seen impression videos go viral. But, Jamie Costa takes it to another level with his tribute to the late Robin Williams. Not only does he have the voice and mannerisms, the resemblance between the late actor and Jamie is downright eerie.

Jamie Costa’s description of the video sums up his goal. ‘My tribute to the man whose spark ignited my passion. RIP Robin Williams.’
Uploading his first video just three weeks ago, he is already on the path for YouTube fame. Thank god it’s not another prank channel. Watching his Matthew McConaughey’s compilation is a riot.

Robin Williams Final Film
Fans of Robin Williams will get to hear him in Simon Pegg’s sci-fi comedy, Absolutely Anything, as a talking dog. It will land in theaters on August 14 in the UK. A United States release date has not been set.
One last movie to enjoy a generational comic. It’s hard to imagine someone coming along to replace the great Robin Williams. We can thank Cotsa for reminding us of the characters he brought to life.
