After a Reddit AMA last week, comedian Will Ferrell revealed to the world that he is actually Chad Smith from the Red Hot Chili Peppers. Ferrell was playing up on the fact that the two doppelgangers look eerily the same.
“It has been acknowledged many times that myself and Chad Smith, drummer for the Red Hot Chili Peppers, share a resemblance to each other,” Farrell said during the question-and-answer session.
“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.”
Ferrell himself is actually a legit drummer, so much so that Snoop Dogg hijacked the convo and asked the star if he’s provide some cowbell for his next joint. Ferrell replied that he has some beats to show the rapper.
Playing off that (or maybe in total seriousness, let’s hope), Smith recently released an Instagram video asking that Ferrell stop impersonating him and then effectively challenged Ferrell to a drum battle.
Watch the video here. It’s creepy how much they look alike. Who will win the golden cowbell? Let’s make this happen.
