For the longest time, people have been saying that comedic actor Will Ferrell (Anchorman, Step Brothers) and Chad Smith, the drummer for Red Hot Chili Peppers, look like one another. These two make every “celebrity lookalike” list ever made. But while those lists oftentimes really stretch in their celebrity comparisons, the Will Ferrell/Chad Smith pair is spot on – these dudes really look like twins.
So, last night, the two men made an appearance together on The Tonight Show featuring Jimmy Fallon where they had a drum battle!!!
Watch the video here below of the drum-off, as well as the video of Fallon interviewing the two men – and as you can imagine, it was very hard for Fallon to not fall over laughing.
Back in February, Ferrell did a Reddit AMA where he said that is actually is Chad Smith. This led to a few exchanges on Instagram between Smith, 52, and his impostor Ferrell, 46.
I love that Ferrell and Smith basically took over ownership of their lookalike status and turned it into something that was not only fun and entertaining, but also something charitable. Both men were participated for a specific charity – Ferrell for Cancer for College (which is also why he did the Reddit AMA) and Smith for Little Kids Rock. On the Cancer for College website, there’s some Drum Off items, like a t-shirt and a limited edition signed cowbell — 100% of proceeds will be split between Little Kids Rock and Cancer for College charities.
