Jamie Costa Channels Robin Williams in Viral New Test Footage Video

A new test footage video shared to YouTube by actor and impressionist Jamie Costa has gome viral on the internet for the uncanny resemblance and impression of the late Robin Williams. The video has nearly 5 million views to date and is gaining traction online with many comments and viewers claiming they would love to see a biopic of Williams featuring Jamie in the leading role.

Robin Williams’ daughter Zelda is not as enthusiastic as fans and has begun asking them to stop tagging her in the viral video, sharing to Twitter, “Guys, I’m only saying this because I don’t think it’ll stop until I acknowledge it… please, stop sending me the ‘test footage’. I’ve seen it. Jamie is SUPER talented, this isn’t against him, but y’all spamming me an impression of my late Dad on one of his saddest days is weird.”
