The Tonight Show: The long-awaited Will Ferrell vs. Chad Smith drum-off

'The Tonight Show': The Long-Awaited Will Ferrell Vs. Chad Smith Drum-Off


Will Ferrell dropped by "The Tonight Show" for the long-awaited drum-off with Red Hot Chili Peppers drummer Chad Smith. But how do you win a drum-off against a pro? Easy... more cowbell. Fourteen years after the Saturday Night Live sketch became a permanent pop culture catchphrase, that cowbell still has us laughing.


Will and Chad arranged the drum-off to settle a friendly rivalry that started when Will was asked how often people confused him with Chad Smith. During a Reddit 'Ask Me Anything' session, Will replied, "There is no Will Ferrell. Only Chad Smith."


Viewers could not stop talking about the battle on Twitter, getting everything from #MORECOWBELL to #lukewarmchilipeppers, an insult Will used on Chad during the drum-off. The segment had five trending topics on Twitter. Chad also tweeted a picture with Will and the cowbell.


A few hours earlier, he tweeted a picture of the drum-off's trophy-a giant golden cowbell, which Will ended up winning. The two were able to raise $300,000 for charity and provide some unforgettable entertainment.
