Much has been made of the uncanny resemblance between Red Hot Chili Peppers drummer Chad Smith and comedian Will Ferrell. The dopplegangers have been taunting each other on social media for months – Ferrell provoked the iconic drummer during his Reddit AMA, which resulted in a hilarious Instagram face-off between the two (watch HERE). Finally, the look-alikes have agreed to battle it out in a drum-off challenge held live TONIGHT on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon!
Musician’s Friend was privy to this resemblance way back in 2009, when Smith posed as Ferrell’s popular character Buddy the Elf on the cover of the guitar retailer’s Holiday catalog. Check out the hilarious behind-the-scenes video of the cover shoot HERE!
Smith and Ferrell are definitely keeping their eyes on the prize; the winner of the battle will receive a giant golden cowbell. Check it out tonight to see who wins!
