Some legend has recreated Lee Carvallo’s Putting Challenge as a real life game

Remarkably, The Simpsons continues. Yet, like a fine wine, experts will know all about the primo vintage. In the early period, the episodes were tolerable but the show hadn’t yet hit its stride. Now it’s agreed by most fans that the series has long-since jumped the shark. But the episode which features Lee Carvallo’s Putting Challenge is right in the sweet spot.

It appears in The Simpsons’ golden period—when it displayed the perfect blend of fable-like moralism and biting cynicism. The episode revolving around Bart’s theft of Bonestorm was just one of these classics. As the credits rolled, Bart plays Lee Carvallo’s Putting Challenge, his terrible makeshift Christmas present. It also pulled the biggest laughs.

Now you can experience that bitterness in real-life with Aaron Demeter’s disturbingly accurate recreation. It sucks, but we wouldn’t want it any other way.Lee Carvallo's Putting Challenge

Lee Carvallo’s Putting Challenge is a terrible game that everyone should play. It’s an exacting recreation of a classic Simpsons scene and it’s guaranteed to leave you feeling, well, underwhelmed.

All you need to do is click on Demeter’s itch.io page and join in the (alleged) fun. The looks are uncannily on-point, but a special mention must go to Lee Carvallo’s creepily robotic voice.
