In the spoof, which was initially reposted by Mashable.com and is featured below, Finland’s Ville Miettunen take a brutal fall during the freestyle skiing men’s moguls qualification.

The Danish late night show splices in "Star Wars" clips that show Empire All Terrain Armored Transport, or AT-ATs, firing lasers at the skier.

Amazingly Miettunen survived the downhill fall and was able to complete the course, though he did receive medical attention afterwards, NESN.com reported.
