Jamie Costa, who you might have heard about for impersonating the beloved late actor Robin Williams, has now shared a five-minute video to his Youtube channel where he is once again impersonating the actor.

The video, which is titled 'ROBIN Test Footage Scene' is creating a lot of frenzy among the fans since the resemblance is uncanny and even fans have asked for a complete film and not just a short clip. The now-viral video was directed by Jake Lewis and in it, we see Jamie Costa as Robin Williams on the set of 'Mork and Mindy' back in 1982. Sarah Murphree also appears in it as his co-star of the film Pam Dawber who is the one to break the news to the actor about the death of his long-time friend John Belushi.


The whole situation was quite traumatic for Robin Williams because not only because John Belushi died from a drug overdose but because Robin was with him just mere hours before this happened. "No, I told you, I was with him. John's not dead, I was with him last night," Costa says emotionally in the video after Murphree told him Belushi had been found dead that morning.

After arguing for some minutes the scene starts to end when someone knocks on the door and tells them that is time for them to go back to the set. Costa's Williams is sitting in front of a mirror and tries to recite his dialogue but at some point, his voice breaks, then stands up, shakes himself out of the stupor and he is back to his energetic self.

The video spread on the internet like dynamite and fans have not shied away from sending the actor a warm message of support. BLOWN AWAY by #JamieCosta in this 'test' footage. WE NEED A BIOPIC STAT!" one fan wrote, sharing the YouTube video."Damnit, now I want a Robin Williams biopic!" another fan agreed. One fan wrote, "Absolutely blown away by this! To capture a person's true essence so beautifully in 5 minutes. AMAZING."

There were others that were more than impressed by Costa's work. Wow. Just. Wow. I've seen his work for years, way back in those primordial Vine days. Jamie Costa is one of the best impressionists EVER. We need a biopic and Jamie Costa needs to be Robin."

While everyone is astonished by Jamie Costa, Robin Williams' daughter Zelda Williams has asked the fans publicly to stop sending her the video because it really is hard to watch not because it is not amazing but because he still has a hard time trying to cope with the loss of her father despite years have passed.

“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.”
