Internet Gold - Will Ferrell and Chad Smith have a drum-off on Jimmy Fallon

This is what the internet is for! There has been a long running joke that Will Ferrell is the drummer for Red Hot Chili Peppers, since him and Chad Smith look so similar.

Chad Smith as Ricky Bobby
Will Ferrell did a reddit AMA where he actually admitted that he was Chad Smith, and that Will Ferrell wasn't a real person. 

Will Ferrell had a video on Instagram saying he's Chad Smith. 

Chad Smith made a reply video telling him to quit impersonating him, and challenged him to a drum-off. 

Then of course  hosted the drum-off on his show. Video of the drum-off via +J.P. Harvey 

On top of all that, there's a hilarious reference to the Saturday Night Live "more cowbell" skit, which happens to feature Jimmy Fallon in the background that can't keep a straight face. I really do love the internet.
