Who Shot Mr. Burns? (2) - S7-E1

Question: Chief Wiggum says that Space Invaders was an addictive video game, and Groundskeeper Willie says, "Video game?" I don't understand why he is so shocked. Could someone help please?

Answer: Willy referred to an encounter he believed he had with actual aliens, while Wiggum thought he was referring to the arcade game.

Answer: The joke is that Willie was so addicted to Space Invaders that he believed it was reality: every time he played, he was actually defending the Earth from dangerous aliens. It's a surprise to him that it was actually a game.
