The Simpsons has long prided itself on creative, clever cough gags during the show's opening title sequence, and this segment that aired as part of the recent "The Scorpion's Tale" episode carries on that tradition and mixes in a video game reference in the process. This joke reimagines the couch gag as a mini-game of sorts with players challenged to choose five characters who then sit on the family's couch. After that? Game Over. After all, the whole point was to seat five characters, not necessarily to do anything with them. Here's the clip via Hulu.
