I have seen this video many times and never tire of watching it. As a matter of fact, one of the bloggers that I follow posted in on her blog.
This skit has meaning for all of us. In it we see this man’s genius, creativity, joviality, ingenuity and feelings. It’s a work of art that I think needs to be share again and again. Excuse me for being on this same topic still but … Robin Williams will always be in my heart and on my mind.
A video of Robin Williams doing comedy as the American flag will make you smile
A comedy bit featuring Robin Williams acting out a monologue as the American flag has reemerged following the actor’s death earlier in September 2014.
The sketch was part of a 1982 special created by famed writer Norman Lear and sponsored by the People For the American Way. The “I Love Liberty” special aired to commemorate the 250th anniversary of George Washington’s birth.
In the raucous five-minute monologue, Williams as the American flag talks about puberty and how only a few years before he had taken a trip to the moon.
“I’ve been in a lot of wars, they’ve fired missiles and rockets at me, but come the dawn’s early light, I’m still there,” Williams says as the flag.
Robin Williams as the American Flag is an entertaining and educational tribute to the Stars and Stripes. This performance was from “I Love Liberty,” a two-hour television special created by Norman Lear and presented by People For the American Way in 1982.
