Video: Will Ferrell Vs. Chad Smith of the Red Hot Chili Peppers Drum Off


As you may have heard, Will Ferrell recently challenged Red Hot Chili Peppers drummer (and Will Ferrell doppelgänger) Chad Smith to a drum off during a Reddit AMA, and the battle royale finally came to be last night on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon. Watch the showdown below–and don’t give up on it and miss the surprise ending! Under the drum-off footage, we’ve included the duo’s pre-battle interview.

Besides being hilarious and awesome, the event raised over $300,000 for Cancer For College.

    The only thing that interested me was whether or not he could really play. Since he’s obviously not really playing there’s no need ot watch the whole vid.

      I thought the same thing when it was on. What a cop out on Will Ferrell’s part. Was he afraid he might embarrass himself and never work again? …lame.

        Not a cop out. He probably just really can’t play and this “drum off” was inspired from him and Chad Smith looking alike.

        You are kidding, right? Will is awesome at making fun of himself, and putting himself out there. This was just a spoof, to raise money for charity, since they look so much alike. I thought it was hilarious! Love it! Will embarrasses himself all the time, that is how he makes his money. And, he is great at what he does.
