Will Ferrell Vs. Chad Smith Drum-Off

Will Ferrell Vs. Chad Smith Drum-Off


Will Ferrell and Chad Smith will finally have their long-awaited drum-off next week on the Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon. Tired of being mistaken for each other, the two have decided to test their drum skills to prove who the real Red Hot Chili Peppers drummer is once and for all.

"We're going to have a drum-off to see who the real Chad Smith is," Smith said. "I'm all for it. But unless Will's been practicing or is secretly a crazy, wild drummer, I think it'll be evident right off the bat who the real Chad Smith is. I'm ready to take him down."

"I have not been practicing," Ferrell said. "There's no amount of practice that would help me become a good drummer."

The two will be playing for a giant golden cowbell and are using the battle to raise money for Cancer for College and Little Kids Rock. They have raised $300,000 for Cancer for College already, a condition Ferrell set for the battle to take place.

Ferrell and Smith have been mistaken for each other for years but the rivalry came to a head during their Reddit AMAs in February, leading to a competition in Instagram videos.

Get ready for the battle, aired live on the Tonight Show on May 22.
