Having starred in the critically-acclaimed figure skating documentary Blades of Glory, Will Ferrell is something of an expert when it comes to throwing down the Salchows. So it only made sense, really, for him to show off his Olympic-level skating chops during his appearance on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon. Unfortunately, Fallon’s new set has yet to install a regulation ice rink, forcing Ferrell to improvise a bit.

Luckily for us, Ferrell’s routine is no less impressive in sneakers, as his elegant, Edwardian-inspired performance proved. Set to the theme of Downton Abbey, the masterful routine brought a much-needed touch of class to the shamefully sordid world of figure skating. Check it out, and see this week’s most medal-worthy performance by a cast member of Zoolander.
