OK, this made us cry…tears of joy!

Americans: You may not know who Aksel Lund Svindal is, but listen up: The hot Norwegian alpine skier is a two-time overall World Cup Champion (including his title from last season), winner of five World Championship medals and four World Cup discipline titles. Basically, he’s Bode Miller’s and Ted Ligety’s toughest competition. (He also looks a little like superstar athlete Lance Armstrong.)

And not only is Svindal a rockstar on the slopes, he’s one in real life, too. Here, the 2009 King of the Hill honors the King of Pop with a Michael Jackson tribute, which he posted on his blog at (Click there or here to watch. Yes, we’re sending you away from our site for now, but you will be grateful. Just be sure to come back.)

Enjoy the ambience (serious mountain vistas) of Portillo, Chile. Enjoy the Norwegians’ hot moves, and best of all, enjoy the skin-tight speed suits, rockin’ helmets and space-agey reflective goggles. Yes, this is a good time.
