Chad Smith, Will Ferrell complete drum off

The pair had their outing on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon

Chad Smith and Will Ferrell finally had their “drum off” on Thursday night’s (May 22nd) edition of The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon.

After months of trash talking and taunting each other over who is the better drummer, the winner was decided on Thursday night and awarded a giant golden cowbell. Watch below to see who won and for “more cowbell” with a surprise performance of “Don’t Fear the Reaper” from the Red Hot Chili Peppers.

Despite which celebrity doppleganger won the final prize, the real winners are the two charity organizations each one was playing for. The pair have raised over $300,000 together for Ferrell’s Cancer for College and Smith’s Little Kids Rock for the battle to occur.

Watch the comedian and Red Hot Chili Peppers drummer speak to Fallon about the organizations before the friendly duel.
