"Lars gets pissed because he gets mistaken for both me and Chad," says comedian
Earlier this year Ferrell and Smith engaged in the light-hearted challenge on The Tonight Show. The pair dressed identically in jeans and Kiss T-shirts for the occasion, highlighting how similar they look.
It was Ferrell making light of the uncanny similarity during a Reddit Ask Me Anything that led the Red Hot Chili Peppers man to challenge him to a duel.
Speaking to Spin about that night and future battles in a new interview, Ferrell said: “I mean, we did talk about another drum-off, Ferrell explained: “With a third person that looks eerily similar to Chad and I. A third drummer out there … Lars gets pissed because he gets mistaken for both me and Chad Smith. He can settle that score now, too.”
Smith added: “There it is. The gauntlet is down.”
Ferrell was declared the winner in the first drum-off after bringing out a cowbell and playing along to the song ‘Don’t Fear The Reaper’, originally by Blue Oyster Cult.
