Video: Will Ferrell vs. Chad Smith [RHCP] Drum-Off

posted by Oscar May 23, 2014

It finally happened, the battle of the celebrity doppelgangers took place last night on The Tonight Show With Jimmy Fallon. Comedic superstar, Will Ferrell and the Red Hot Chili Peppers drummer, Chad Smith appeared with matching leather jackets, Kiss Destroyer T-shirts, and blue baseball caps worn backwards, talked to Fallon about how their feud came about so of course each one was speaking as the other person.

Then came the moment everyone was there to see: the drum-off! While Smith’s talents gave him the upper hand, Ferrell had Questlove ghost-drumming for him. To cap things off RHCP came out to put on a surprise performance of Blue Oyster Cult’s iconic “Don’t Fear The Reaper,” which is best known to our generation for the “we need more cowbell” sketch that Ferrell made iconic on SNL.
