Fans of rock music and the Red Hot Chilli Peppers have, for years, acknowledged and even theorized that RHCP’s drummer, Chad Smith, bares a striking resemblance to Hollywood’s funnyman, Will Ferrell.
In a recent Reddit AMA (Ask Me Anything), Ferrell posted, “It has been acknowledged many times that myself and Chad Smith, drummer for the Red Hot Chili Peppers, share a resemblance to each other,” Ferrell then continued, “A lot of people think that it’s me playing for the Red Hot Chili Peppers. But that would be an insult to Chad Smith. The truth of the matter is there is no Will Ferrell. Only Chad Smith.”
So, there it is folks: WILL FERRELL is CHAD SMITH!
Hints have constantly been thrown, but most notably when Smith dress as Ferrell’s character in Talladega Nights: Ricky Bobby.
For the nonbelievers out there, Will Ferrell (Chad Smith) took to Instagram to acknowledge the whole deal.
That’s all good and fine, but a day after Ferrell posted his confession, Chad appeared on Instagram with another video pleading Ferrell to stop impersonating him and, furthermore, challenged him to a drumming battle.
So what’s the truth? Who is Will Ferrell? Who is Chad Smith? The world may never know…
Editor’s Note: For clarity: this was a fun, fluff piece. Will Ferrell and Chad Smith are two completely different people that just look the same!
