Will Ferrell joked during his Reddit AMA (Ask Me Anything) session on Feb. 4 that he and lookalike Red Hot Chili Pepper drummer Chad Smith were actually one and the same person. Well, Chad didn’t take lightly to that — he challenged Will to a drum battle!
Will Ferrell and Red Hot Chili Peppers drummer Chad Smith could easily be mistaken for each other — they look that much alike. But it seems Chad has had enough of fans drawing the comparison. So after Will said that he and Chad were the same person during a Reddit AMA, Chad decided to challenge the Anchorman 2 star to a drum battle! It should be an interesting competition, but if Will’s flick Step Brothers has taught us anything, it’s that Chad should NOT touch Will’s drum set!

When it comes to saying outrageous and hilarious things, Will does not shy away — and his Reddit AMA session was no exception!
“It has been acknowledged many times that myself and Chad Smith, drummer for the Red Hot Chili Peppers, share a resemblance to each other,” Will said on Reddit. “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.”
After learning about Will’s joke, Chad took the time to respond with a video on his Instagram. “It’s Chad, stop impersonating me,” he said. “In fact, I need you — drum battle, me and you. I’ve seen your skills, you don’t got ’em, golden cowbell, winner, boom!”
We hope Will rises to the challenge because we think this drum battle would be hilarious!
