Not only they managed to pull the stunt, they won an award for it.

Indonesian newspaper won a gold award for borrowing from ‘The Godfather’.

Run by one of the country’s most reputable editorial team, Koran Tempo, a local Indonesian Language newspaper run a half-page imagery borrowing the legendary illustration from The Godfather.

Depicting a key player on an ongoing corruption scandal-turn-criminal-investigation, the whole picture perfectly narrates the entire story of the allegedly corruption-ridden administration.
