If you’re not a fan of the Winter Olympics, then most self-respecting sci-fi fans are left with precious few options on TV this week. But what if the Olympics took place on Hoth? Now, that I’d watch.

That’s the hilarious setup for this simple but awesome Star Wars mashup video, which imagines Olympic skiers being shot at by Imperial AT-AT lasers. The effects are actually pretty good, and though it’s a pretty obvious setup, it doesn’t make this clip any less fun.

You've also got to love those reaction shots they've spliced in. Seriously, how else can you explain those mad crashes? It’s the Empire!
