We’ve seen a number of amazing tributes for the late comedian Robin Williams over the past few days, but the one you’ll see below is easily the most clever of them all. WSB sports anchor Zach Klein was somehow able to fit in 23 Williams movie and television references into his regular nightly report. His delivery is so nonchalant that you probably won’t even notice until the “Jumanji” line.
News.com.au was able to get a quote from Klein, who made it clear that he just wanted to honor the late star.
“Honestly, I just wanted to do something to show my appreciating for the greatness that was Robin Williams.”
Here’s the clip. For those of you viewing on mobile, we’ve included a YouTube version as well, but the beginning and end are both cut off by a few seconds.
We’ve also listed out each reference.
Klein drops 21 movie titles, one television series title and one quote from Dead Poets Society.
- Nine Months
- Man Of The Year
- Happy Feet
- Everyone’s Hero
- Mrs. Doubtfire
- World’s Greatest Dad
- Father’s Day

- “Seize the day boys. Make your lives extraordinary.” – Dead Poets Society
A job very well done, Mr. Klein.
It’s clear that Williams touched millions of lives across the globe. Our thoughts are with his family and friends.
