Will Ferrell and Chad Smith's Drum Battle Video Is Available
After years of the two being confused for one another, Red Hot Chili Peppers' own Chad Smith and actor Will Ferrell finally set the record straight with a drum battle of epic proportions on last night's the Tonight Show. The real-life doppelgangers - who coincidentally also have a similar taste in style - faced off in a "traditional drum-off" with "traditional rules." Watch the video below.

Prior to the drum off, Ferrell and Smith sat down with Jimmy Fallon to discuss their rivalry. Also, watch it below.

Ferrell laid the groundwork for a drum battle against Smith during a Reddit AMA last February. "It has been acknowledged many times that myself and Chad Smith, drummer for the Red Hot Chili Peppers, share a resemblance to each other," Ferrell wrote. "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, Smith issued a public challenge to Farrell: "Stop impersonating me. In fact, I need you ... drum battle. Me and you. I've seen your skills; you don't got 'em. Let's go. Golden cowbell. Winner. Boom!" Ferrell accepted on the condition they raise $300,000 for the charities Cancer for College and Little Kids Rock, which was quickly accomplished following an online fundraiser.
