Jamie Costa isn’t exactly a household name but he might be soon enough. He’s one of those people famous for their video endeavours, be it on Vine or YouTube. His latest post is a tribute video to Robin Williams, or as Costa describes, “the man whose spark ignited my passion,” and it’s nothing short of stellar.
Williams was Costa’s inspiration and, like his idol, he mastered the art of creating characters. Costa impersonates Williams so uncannily that not only does he sound like the late star but looks like him too. Costa tackles 20 beloved characters from beloved projects like Mork & Mindy, Jumanji, Good Will Hunting, Good Morning Vietnam, Mrs. Doubtfire, The Birdcage, Hook and Aladdin and his impressions are as close to the real thing as you’re going to get.
But Jamie doesn’t just do a mean Robin. Just when you think he looks and sounds exactly like Williams, all you have to do is search the Internet and see he also does extraordinary takes on Matthew McConaughey, Indiana Jones and Gandalf, Wolverine, The Joker and George W. Bush. Amazing.
