To get him off the couch they hatch a plan to appear as if he's taken over Earth. Things get out of hand when the wife as well as Earths Defense Force believe he's actually done it.

Omicron Persei 8 is 1000 light years away from Earth so it seems Ndnd could never hear the transmission in a sensible time - this was actually the idea behind the story line in the episode "When Aliens Attack". However, it has been established in "A Clone of My Own" that in Futurama's future, the speed of light has been increased. So while television signals from the year 2000 still travel at the old speed of light (as in "When Aliens Attack"), signals broadcast in 3010 (as in this episode) would reach Omicron Persei 8 much faster.
