Watch Chad Smith storm off stage after heckler shouts “Will Ferrell!”

"SHUT UP!'

Red Hot Chili Peppers drummer Chad Smith jokingly stormed off stage recently after a heckler noted his much-publicised resemblance to actor Will Ferrell.

Smith and Ferrell, who have often been mistaken for one another due to their uncanny resemblance, previously performed together on The Tonight Show in 2014.

The pair took part in a drum battle that raised nearly $500,000 for Smith and Ferrell’s respective charities.

But despite the good-natured rivalry, Smith tricked one fan into thinking that he’d had enough during a recent performance at the Los Angeles Musicians Institute.

Moments after the fan dared to shout Ferrell’s name at him, Smith immediately departed with a Step Brothers-esque shout of ‘SHUT UP!’  before eventually returning to confront his chief heckler.

“Listen, are you a musician? You’re a drummer? Why did you say that? Because you love me”, Smith told the fan.

“You love me and go ‘oh Will Ferrell!” I’m not Will Ferrell, you idiot”

He added: “Nah I’m just fucking with you. I don’t give a shit, I think it’s great! I’m fucking famous because of Will Ferrell. Fuck that guy, right!”

Along with their drum battle, Smith and Ferrell previously took part in a 2016 charity benefit concert together.

“So much goodwill came out of one silly joke. We’ve been trying to find another way to get together and do some more good for our respective causes and I think we have found it”, Smith previously said of their friendship.
