You all know what Will Ferrell looks like. He’s the big, lumbering fella from Anchorman and Old School with the curly hair and hooded brow. But do you know what Chad Smith, the drummer from the Red Hot Chili Peppers, looks like? No? Well, exactly like Will Ferrell. Yep, really!
The doppelgangers have been having a light-hearted war of words recently over which one of them is the better drummer (we think we probably already know the answer to that!). Finally, The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon got the two brothers-from-another-mother together to stage a drum-off and find out once and for all. The results are pretty spectacular. And really quite surprising!
“That was cute,” Ferrell disses Smith with at one point during the drum-off, “do you play for the Luke Warm Chili Peppers?”
See what went down in full in the video below. Fans of the Red Hot Chili Peppers should keep watching until the end – the band pitch up and, with Mr. Ferrell on cowbell, treat us to a rendition of the Blue Oyster Cult classic, ‘Don’t Fear the Reaper’.
How about that? Not only are they both freakishly similar looking – who knew Ron Burgundy was so good on the drums?!
