Will Ferrell, Chad Smith End Rivalry With Drum-Off

The look-a-likes finally went head-to-head in a drum-off that will go down in history..

Will Ferrell and Red Hot Chilli Peppers drummer Chad Smith ended their rivalry with a highly anticipated ‘drum-off’ last night (May 22).

The battle happened on the infamous Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, after last week Chad announced: "We're going to have a drum-off to see who the real Chad Smith is."

Having a long history of looking alike, the pair even dressed the same in a leather jacket, Kiss t-shirt and blue caps.

Struggling to keep a straight face as they pretended to be each other in a pre-challenge interview, Ferrell acting as Chad joked: “I’ll be honest I’m a little high right now”.

With four solos each the pair soon took to their drum kits and gave the inevitable smack-talk, with Fallon eventually declaring Will the winner.

Red Hot Chilli Peppers surprised the audience with a performace at the end of the drum-off playing with both of them.

Over $300,000 was raised for Cancer for College and Little Kids Rock, in support of the battle taking place.
