We don’t know why it’s taken so long for this moment to arrive, but thank Jimmy Fallon for this moment in musical history. It’s been noted for years now that actor Will Ferrell and Red Hot Chili Peppers drummer Chad Smith look alike, but now the two are finally confronting this fact on The Tonight Show with the world’s most epic drum-off ever.
Ferrell and Smith sat down first with Fallon and swapped roles during the interview to confuse the host.
And then came time for the drum-off. Ferrell clearly isn’t the most skilled drummer out there but he holds his own throughout the rounds and it appeared that he was losing pretty badly to Smith until he pulled it out: the cowbell. What ensued was a surprise performance by the Red Hot Chili Peppers. Guys, this is going to be the most amazing thing you’ll watch today, possibly ever. Just turn off your computer after this, go outside and enjoy the weekend because nothing will top it.
