Real life doppelgängers finally fulfilled a promise of the ages. Anchorman star, Will Farrell and Red Hot Chili Peppers Drummer, Chad Smith faced off in a “Drum-off,” on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon.
To highlight how similar they look, the two dressed identically in jeans and Kiss T-shirts for the occasion. The competition was played along “traditional drum off rules.” They each got four solos and, in Fallon’s words, “whoever whacks, smacks and slaps the skins best wins.” After one of his rounds, Ferrell said to Smith, “That was cute. Do you play for the Lukewarm Chili Peppers?”
Ferrell was declared winner after bringing out a cowbell and playing along to the song Don’t Fear the Reaper, originally by Blue Oyster Cult. At that moment, Smith’s band put in a surprise appearance.
