You’ve gotta fight for your right to…
In a move surprising absolutely no one Chad Smith, drummer of Red Hot Chili Peppers, has finally challenged his doppelgänger Will Ferrell to a drum battle, to put an end to this feud once and for all.
Chad Smith was spurred into action when Will Ferrell claimed that he has been a member of the Red Hot Chili Peppers since 1988 during a Reddit AMA session. Ferrell wrote, “It has been acknowledged many times that myself and Chad Smith, drummer for the Red Hot Chili Peppers, 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.”
In response, Chad Smith posted a video to Funny or Die’s (comedy video website whose birth was helped by Will Ferrell) Instagram issuing the drum-off challenge. There has been no reply from Will Ferrel as of yet.
I’ve been waiting for this since Chad Smith performed with Sammy Hagar’s supergroup Chickenfoot on The Tonight Show With Conan O’Brien while sporting a t-shirt with the slogan “I am not Will Ferrell”
