Minecraft gets official Simpsons couch gag

One sure sign you’ve made it in life is when you are transformed into a “couch gag” on The Simpsons. Another is when you are transformed into a Minecraft creation. But what happens when those two collide?

Simply, this:

Minecraft creator Notch comments on Twitter that he’s “not sure how he feels about it”.

I STILL feel a bit like it’s just this small game I made at home. It’s so weird to have all these things happen. <3

Virtually every episode of The Simpsons features a different couch gag. For those who aren’t familiar (how comfy is that rock you’ve been living under?), the introduction to the show features the four-fingered family rushing home to sit on the couch and watch TV. These have been going on since season one of the popular comedy (back in 1989), and have featured or parodied elements of pop culture including The Beatles, Rocky & Bullwinkle, the Harlem Globetrotters, The Brady Bunch, James Bond and The Late Show with David Letterman.

Last night’s episode has divided fans, but the general consensus – at least – is that Moe as a self-destructing Creeper is entirely fitting.
