Will Farrell and Red Hot Chili Pepper's Chad Smith: Drum Battle Royale

With a "take notes, Chadwick," Will Ferrell throws down the gauntlet to Red Hot Chili Pepper's Chad Smith in the battle of the drummers on “The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon.” 

US Weekly posted a link to the official video in Madeline Boardman’s piece,“Will Ferrell, Red Hot Chili Peppers' Chad Smith Hold Drum-Off on The Tonight Show With Jimmy Fallon.”

In January, Funny or Die brought up the visual similarity of Ferrell and Smith, creating a skit posted on their Instagram. A month later, Ferrell told Reddit users in an ‘Ask Me Anything’ session that “it has been acknowledged many times that myself and Chad Smith, drummer for the Red Hot Chili Peppers, share a resemblance to each other." As the users joked around, ScarlesBarkley noted Chad Smith dressed up as Ferrell's character, Ricky Bobby, from "Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby” in a 2006 concert. 

The joke’s longevity seems to rely on random references throughout the years. 

Both men played each other and kicking up the energy for the “traditional drum off,” according to Fallon. Wearing matching backwards baseball caps, leather jackets, KISS tees, blue jeans, and earrings, it was hard to tell the other apart. Ferrell told Fallon in the previous segment they “were tricking you” while Fallon plays along. Though Ferrell broke character a bit with his five o’clock shadow.

Smith and Farrell were offered four solos to declare the winner. As the RHCP drummer amped up his skills, Farrell played the comic role of taunter without any skills to back up the statement. After the first round, Farrell uses a high-pitched voice to come back with “looks like baby learned to play the drums.” At the end of his second attempt, he breaks the fourth wall of the skit, saying “I just blew my mind” in reference to how “there is no Will Ferrell. Only Chad Smith.” 

Topper of all, and declared winning action by Fallon, was bringing out the infamous cowbell

On “Saturday Night Live,” one of Ferrell’s most famous characters played a cowbell with an emphasis on “more cowbell!”  Once cowbell was out, the rest of the Red Hot Chili Peppers appeared on stage—creating a jam session between the rockers and actor right before commercial break.

TheLos Angeles Times reports that the two men agreed to a drum off to support each’s choice of charity. Ferrell’s involvement in Cancer for College made his choice easy enough and Smith’s donation goes to Little Kids Rock.
