People have been spotting the parallels between Arrested Development and the Godfather trilogy for years. The corrupt patriarch running a family, the son and heir named Michael, the two brothers, one hotheaded and the other dopey. Both tales even included cousins in love. And the show itself nodded meaningfully in Coppola’s direction from time to time—leaving handlebars in a character’s bed, having Lucille asks her son, “Is it true, Michael?”
Now Leigh Singer has mashed the two together in a video for Slacktory, in case anyone remained unconvinced. Enjoy.
