Before He Died, Robin Williams Helped a Co-Star Ask a Girl to Prom

It’s been four months and most of us are still mourning the loss of Robin Williams this past summer. Since then, we’ve seen and heard countless accounts of Williams’ kindness throughout his career that have kept his memory alive. The latest comes from his Night at the Museum: Secret of the Tomb co-star Skyler Gisondo, who plays Ben Stiller’s son in the franchise.

While on set, both Williams and Stiller helped him stage an elaborate “prom-posal” to help him ask a girl to his senior prom. In the video, which you can watch above, the two (and Crystal the Monkey) trade some funny banter to make their case for why she should accept Gisondo’s invitation. It’s yet another example of Williams’ comedic genius and generosity that we’ll continue to miss.
