Chad Smith of the Red Hot Chili Peppers had some fun during a recent show after a heckler called out his resemblance to comedian Will Ferrell.
The comedic moment happened while Smith was sitting in for a performance at the Musician’s Institute in Los Angeles. Smith was introducing a song when the heckler shouted out Ferrell’s name, eliciting an instant “Shut up!” from the drummer, who then knocked over a mic stand and stormed offstage.
Smith returned after chants of “We want Chad” rang out through the venue. Accosting the heckler, who turned out to be a fellow drummer and fan.
“I’m not Will Ferrell, you idiot!,” Smith yelled back, before admitting that he loved it in an NSFW response.
