The video received millions of views before it was removed by Costa on Friday out of respect for Williams’s family.
“The recent ‘Robin test scene’ was meant for internal use only and to be reviewed at a more appropriate and private time by those who were close,” Costa wrote on YouTube.
“After being informed of its leak I attempted to get ahead of it and upload it here so as to be an honest source of its existence.
“Please be respectful of the family during this time.”
The video’s scene was set on March 5, 1982, the day after actor and comedian John Belushi’s fatal drug overdose.

Costa’s performance has been heralded as capturing Williams’s iconic mannerism, voice and appearance.
When the video was available on YouTube, Williams’s daughter, Zelda, acknowledged on Twitter that Costa was “SUPER talented” but asked people to stop “spamming me an impression of my late Dad on one of his saddest days”.
Fans of Williams were stunned by Costa’s performance and called for him to play the late comedian in a movie.
“Give this man a movie deal asap,” Jordan Doww wrote on YouTube.
