After months of jabs and confused identities, comedian Will Ferrell and Red Hot Chili Peppers drummer Chad Smith will settle once and for all who the real Chad Smith is with an epic drum battle that will take place May 22nd on "The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon".
Although Ferrell and Smith have never appeared publicly together before the face-off, fans of the comedian and Chili Peppers drummer have been drawing attention to their similar appearances for years.
This caused Ferrell to joke on his Reddit AMA (Ask Me Anything) in February that he was in fact Red Hot Chili Peppers drummer Chad Smith and that Will Ferrell doesn't actually exist. In response, Smith invited Ferrell to a drum battle challenge to settle once and for all who the real Chad Smith is.
Since then, the percussion enthusiasts have continued their trash talk while raising over $300,000 for the charity Cancer for College. And now the drum battle has finally found a location on Fallon.
Smith told Rolling Stone "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. I'm ready to take him down."
While Ferrell told Rolling Stone that he hasn't been practicing, he may be able to find an edge using the cowbell he made famous in a Saturday Night Live skit in 2000.
