Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you’ve more than likely laughed at the funniness that Will Ferrell just spews out. I know for a fact that you, my friend, do not live under a rock because you are currently on a website about television.
What I didn’t know until recently was that Will Ferrell and the drummer of the Red Hot Chili Peppers look like identical twins. Chad Smith is the name of the drummer of the Red Hot Chili Peppers and is a top shelf drummer, so it would be natural for him to have a drum off with professional comedic actor Will Ferrell.
Okay, it’s not natural at all. Ferrell said during a Reddit chat that Chad Smith isn’t a real person, but a Ferrell character. The Tonight Show proved that they are very much two different people or at least one of them is a Michael Jackson-like believable hologram.
The drum-off had been rumored for a while and finally found a home on Thursday night’s edition of The Tonight Show. The battle was for the sake of being awesome and charity.
Chad Smith’s appearance during The Tonight Show prompted a surprise performance by the Red Hot Chili Peppers with the surprise being spoiled during primetime promos.
PS. A cowbell shows up in Will Ferrell’s hands.
