Retired Olympic gold medalist Tara Lipinski channeled The Dude from "The Big Lebowski" for a sketch on "Late Night With Jimmy Fallon" that's going viral.

She performed the solo figure skating routine at Rockefeller Center earlier this week for one of Fallon's final shows before he moves to "The Tonight Show."

The skit featured Lipinski as Jeff Bridges' character, dressed in a bath robe and holding a White Russian drink. She skates to Kenny Rogers' "Just Dropped In (To See What Condition My Condition Was In)," which is also in the film.

When she was 15, Lipinski became the youngest gold medalist in the history of the Olympic Winter Games. She's 31 now.

Opening ceremonies for the Sochi Olympics are scheduled to begin Friday night.

Fallon debuts as host of "The Tonight Show" on Feb. 17.
