The difficult moguls course at the Sochi Olympics has led to quite a few falls. Many have blamed the course, the warm weather, the soft snow.

But finally, the real reason has been uncovered: The moguls course is being protected by Imperial Walkers. Apparently Darth Vader and the Emperor from "Star Wars" have decided they will have an effect on the outcome.

Or, it could just be a clever mash-up video put together by the Danish TV show "Natholdet." Either way, the result is hilarious.
