As a tribute to the man whose spark ignited his passion, actor and filmmaker Jamie Acosta of Greeneville, South Carolina, uploaded a video on YouTube titled, “Never Had a Friend Like Him”. It is a compilation of 20 impressions of Robin Williams’ most memorable characters such as Mrs. Doubtfire, Teddy Roosevelt from The Night at the Museum, Genie from Aladdin and many more. This video has immediately gone viral and earned more than 585,000 views on its first 24 hours online.
Costa also impersonates other actors like Owen Wilson, Matthew McConaughey, Russell Crowe and many others.
