Chad Smith and Will Ferrell Finally Have Drum-Off

Chad Smith and Will Ferrell finally have an epic drum-off on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon. It was a wager that had been awaiting settlement for some time now. But now it has been finally dealt with and the hatchet has been buried. 

The drummer Chad Smith of the Red Hot Chili Peppers and Will Ferrell matched musical wits and one of them won. The occasion was the “Drum Off” on the “Tonight Show”. 

"We're going to have a drum-off to see who the real Chad Smith is," Smith said, referring to Ferrell, who is often considered to be his celebrity look-alike. "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."

The two entered the competition in identical outfits. Talk about matching individual mightiness with each other! The two had their own agendas, both of which were for charitable purposes. 

"I'm ready to take him down," Smith added.

"There's no amount of practice that would help me become a good drummer," Will Ferrell said. "Chad apparently has a lot of anger and issues," the comedian continued. "I don't quite come from the same place. I don't get nearly as many references to being Chad Smith as he does Will Ferrell. I'm not looking at this as much as a competition so much as a public service to the world."

There was a brief period of foulmouthed behavior in the beginning and then the show ensued. The drums were ready to be exploded in the passion to sound off the best percussion performance. Both got four rounds, fair and square.

"If I win, he has to wash my car for a month and give me pedicures," Smith said. "If I lose, I have to be his stand-in for his next film."

While what Ferrell did was no mean feat, Smith outshone him by a long shot. In the end, when Ferrell threw down his drum sticks in exasperation he instead of picking them back up picked a cowbell. Then he started playing a tune on the cowbell. The rest of the members of the Red Hot Chili Peppers came on stage and joined Ferrell. It was a lively performance and the crowd cheered on with total abandonment. 

Both players did their stuff with passion and style and fashion. They proved their worth and the saying that “winning and losing doesn’t matter, it’s how you play the game” rang true in the end. Such displays of healthy competition have always lit many a stage. 

And the audience has often joined in and proved to be a very vocal barometer of how the individual players are doing. The current performance will be a meme that refuses to be erased from the memory bank of Western culture and entertainment

Watch below the video of the Chad Smith and Will Ferrell drum-off.
