For years he’s been compared to Will Ferrell and last night (May 22) Red Hot Chili Peppers drummer Chad Smith went head-to-head with the “Anchorman” actor in a drum-off on “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon.”

The “Give It Away” rocker wore his usual Kiss t-shirt, reversed ball cap and designer denim jeans and of course Ferrell copied the look exactly.

Fallon explained, “This is a traditional drum-off. You each get four solos. Whoever whacks, smacks and slaps the skins best wins. So without further ado, let the drum-off begin!”

And while Will was obviously mimicking playing the drums as house band drummer Questlove backed him up, Smith proved his percussive prowess with a stellar showing.

At one point Ferrell taunted Smith, “That was cute. Do you play for the Lukewarm Chili Peppers?” and afterwards the rest of the Red Hot Chili Peppers came out and Will grabbed a cowbell for “Don’t Fear the Reaper.”
