* The short-lived sketch comedy show ''Hollow Men'' parodied this with the [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tWxL0fMTk-U Advanced Brando Syndrome skit]]. Young men would do mumbling impersonations of [[Film/TheGodfather Don Vito Corleone]] and then they would get stuck in the routine of impersonating him, even going so far as to dress up like the Don with no means of stopping. It's treated as a life-threatening epidemic spreading across the country.


* Creator/AdrienBrody's Luca Changretta in ''Series/PeakyBlinders'' also speaks in a muffled, lispy, ''Godfather''-ish voice.

* ''Series/SpittingImage'': Done in a sketch where RodSteiger and MarlonBrando mimick their famous scene from ''Film/OnTheWaterfront''. Steiger complains how he never became a big star like Brando. Brando starts talking to Steiger, but takes a very long time to end his sentence. Finally it turns out that he scolds Steiger because "you... never... never, never... knew ... how... to make one sentence last... for minutes."
