Video: Ferrell and Chillies’ drummer Chad have drum-off


Irish-American actor Will Ferrell enjoyed a drum-off last with Red Hot Chili Peppers drummer Chad Smith on US show Jimmy Fallon.

It might look like there’s not much in between the pair’s drumming talents, but that’s probably because Chad is actually playing the actor’s drum parts all along, though you couldn’t see it on camera.

It finished with the rest of the Red Hot Chili Peppers joining Chad on stage for a rendition of Blue Oyster Cult’s Don’t Fear the Reaper, a song which Ferrell parodied in a famous Saturday Night Live More Cowbell sketch a few years ago.
