Check Out Will Ferrell And Chad Smith Have A Drum Battle On The Tonight Show Posted by Joseph Lee on 05.23.2014
It's finally happened...
Last night on The Tonight Show, Will Ferrell and Chad Smith of the Red Hot Chili Peppers had a "greatest drummer" face-off, and you can watch it below. The two dressed up the same outfit to play on the fact that some people say they look alike.
Fallon was the judge of the "traditional drum-off", which featured four solos each. The winner was the one who "whacks, smacks and slaps the skins best." Smith did what he does best and so did Ferrell, who was quick to deliver trash talk. At one point he said: "That was cute. Do you play for the Luke Warm Chili Peppers?"
Fallon actually awarded the victory to Ferrell after he brought out a cowbell to use.
The drum battle was set up after Ferrell challenged Smith (during Smiths' Reddit AMA) for charity. Ferrell drummed for www.cancerforcollege.org, while Smith drummed for www.littlekidsrock.org. The Red Hot Chili Peppers made a surprise appearance on the same show to perform a cover of Blue Oyster Cult's "Don't Fear the Reaper", with Ferrell on cowbell.
