It was Season 7, Episode 11 of The Simpsons. Our main antagonist Bart wanted nothing more than a copy of Bonestorm, so he is convinced by Nelson and Jimbo to try and steal it instead.
Now mind you this was 1995 and the world was campaigning against 'ultra-violent games that turn our kids into monsters' such as Mortal Kombat, etc.
At the end of the episode, after Bart wins over Marge, she gets him a Christmas gift, Lee Carvallo's Putting Challenge" and fantastically, someone has created it in real life nearly 25yrs later.
Here's the original video of the game from the end credits, still hilarious.
Again, someone didn't make Bonestorm. They made the disappointing game, possibly in a sarcastic manner, which might even be more poetic considering that The Simpsons thrived on sarcasm. That is truly poetic. I love it.
The game was made by Aaron Demeter, who claims to have spent less than a week building the came which allows you to choose between the ever-famous "Feather Touch" and "Power Drive" swings.
Even the original showrunner of The Simpsons, Bill Oakley approves of the feat, as seen in the tweet below, which is what cause the game to explode amongst diehard 90's fans. I for one shrieked at the amazingness of it's simplistic awful greatness in true Simpsons fashion. If you can't load that, you can visit the game's official site link here.
