It's on!
The Red Hot Chili Peppers front man and funnyman Will Ferrell will battle it out behind a drum kit on Thursday 22nd May, after fans suggested they look so alike they could be the same person.

Smith challenged Ferrell to a battle after Ferrell told his Reddit Ask Me Anything audience that he was Chad Smith back in February. Smith told Rolling Stone, "We're going to have a drum-off to see who the real Chad Smith is."

The pair agreed to appear on the Tonight Show in American TV, where a giant golden cowbell will be up for grabs as well as both sides raising money for their chosen charities.

Smith described Ferrell's playing as "terrible" saying "I hope he's practicing."
