Red Hot Chili Peppers’ Chad Smith Challenges Will Ferrell To A Drum Battle, Ferrell Agrees

By Nadia Noir

After a Reddit AMA last week, comedian Will Ferrell revealed to the world that he is actually Chad Smith from the Red Hot Chili Peppers. Ferrell was playing up on the fact that the two doppelgangers look eerily the same.

“It has been acknowledged many times that myself and Chad Smith, drummer for the Red Hot Chili Peppers, share a resemblance to each other,” Farrell said during the question-and-answer session.

“A lot of people think that it’s me playing for the Red Hot Chili Peppers. But that would be an insult to Chad Smith. The truth of the matter is there is no Will Ferrell. Only Chad Smith.”

Ferrell himself is actually a legit drummer, so much so that Snoop Dogg hijacked the convo and asked the star if he’s provide some cowbell for his next joint. Ferrell replied that he has some beats to show the rapper.

Playing off that (or maybe in total seriousness, let’s hope), Smith recently released an Instagram video asking that Ferrell stop impersonating him and then effectively challenged Ferrell to a drum battle.

Watch the video here. It’s creepy how much they look alike. Who will win the golden cowbell? Let’s make this happen.

[Update: Rolling Stone reports that Ferrell accepted the challenged, saying: “Hi, Chad. Will Ferrell here. I saw your video and I graciously accept your invitation to a drum battle. If we can raise $300,000 for Cancer for College I will face off with you in the greatest drum vs. cowbell showdown the world has ever seen. We can do it on stage at a Red Hot Chili Peppers concert or in front of a mutually convenient public library. Your call. Also, would you rather fight a hundred duck sized ducks or one horse sized horse?”]

Smith is getting “juiced” for the drum battle.
