"Will Ferrell": Chad Smith Receives The Greatest Heckle Ever

The Red Hot Chili Peppers drummer was performing when a heckler kept shouting out the name of his comedic doppelgänger.
Will Ferrell looks like Chad Smith and Chad Smith looks like Will Ferrell. It's something we've all known for a few years now, but for some reason it never gets old.
One fan decided to remind the RHCP sticksman of the joke during a performance last year at the Los Angeles Musicians Institute, by shouting out the comedian's name on stage.
At first glance the Dark Necessities rocker didn't take too kindly to the joke, and yelled "SHUT UP" before storming off.

However, returning on stage, he addressed the fan asking: "Listen, are you a musician? You’re a drummer? Why did you say that?"
When the fan revealed it was because he loved him, Smith responded: “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."
Phew, we thought Chad was serious there. We guess now we know he's a guy you DON'T mess with.
