The Epic Will Ferrell Vs. Chad Smith Drum-Off You’ve Been Waiting For

In the battle for the greatest drummer title on 'The Tonight Show,' the performance turns out to be something rather unexpected.

Lookalikes Will Ferrell and Red Hot Chili Peppers drummer Chad Smith challenged each other to a drum-off on Thursday night's "The Tonight Show.”

We do have to confess there is a certain resemblance between the two – don’t trust us? Check this out.

Ferrell and Smith's similar looks

The idea of a drum-off emerged when Ferrell participated in a Reddit AMA. Much of the discussion circled around Ferrell and Smith's similar looks.

“It has been acknowledged many times that myself and Chad Smith ... share a resemblance to each other. 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 wrote on Reddit.

A challenge was issued for a drum-off – all the while doing some good work for humanity. The twosome would only have a drum-off if they could raise $300,000 for Cancer For College. The rest, as they say, is history.

Ferrell was fairly impressive in the beginning. However Smith, who has been a drummer pretty much all his life, was bound to be even better.

Eventually some special guest stars spelled the end for Ferrell, but gave the audience an incredible performance of "Don't Fear the Reaper."
