The Will Ferrell vs. Chad Smith Drum-Off was the Best!

Here is your must watch video of the day SO good we are allowing a one time exemption from the perma-ban on using the word EPIC. This drum-off between comedian Will Ferrell and Red Hot Chili Peppers was Legen–wait for iiittttttt–dary.

And all for a great cause.

In case you don’t know the backstory, Ferrell and Smith bear an uncanny resemblance. Sometime in February, Smith challenged Ferrell to a drum battle. During a Reddit AMA, Ferrell responded thusly:

“”Hi, Chad. Will Ferrell here. I saw your video and I graciously accept your invitation to a drum battle. If we can raise $300,000 (£182,000) for Cancer For College I will face off with you in the greatest drum vs. cowbell showdown the world has ever seen. We can do it on stage at a Red Hot Chili Peppers concert or in front of a mutually convenient public library. Your call. Also, would you rather fight a hundred duck sized ducks or one horse sized horse?”

Well, the venue was selected: Jimmy Fallon’s Tonight Show Stage. And the event did not disappoint. Check it out and watch until the end.
