This is a great performance by the late Robin Williams that engulfed everything that is American during his five-minute monolog.
With his masterful skill for switching between voices, Williams embodies a proud, cheeky, and brave American flag. “I had a tough puberty. War, famine, invasion. And in 1861 I had a little skin problem that broke out into 34 stars. But now, well, with a little patience, look at what we’ve got now” — he pulls off a sleeve, revealing another layer of stars — “all 50! Everybody’s on here.”
“I haven’t been getting out much lately. I guess it’s not chic to put up the flag anymore,” Williams playfully laments. “Don’t look at is as saluting me, look at it as saluting yourselves. I’m just a flag, a symbol. You’re the people, if I may say so from here,” he says, putting his hand to his heart. “Long may you wave.”
