It's crazy how similar they look in the still of the first video. That was great.

Two thoughts:

1. Is Will actually playing? I feel like he is just miming and Questlove was doing his part.

2. I like how Flea and Josh's guitars aren't plugged in.

The symbols don't move and he's almost always shown in close up.

Bummed that Will wasn't actually playing. It was funny as is, but would have also been funny if he just played terribly. Cowbell ending was great.

aawwwhhh honey were you expecting an actual drum off? will is obviously miming either a back track or quest. also, is that second question sarcasm because their instruments are in fact plugged in. RHCP also played a song with The Roots after this sooook

Besides what everyone else said I just heard his WTF interview with Maron and he says pretty explicitly that he doesn't play any instruments at all. I was expecting Chad to go first, do something amazing, then Will would have difficulty just keeping time.

He's definitely not actually playing. But it's still a great video either way!

If this was on a cable show, I wonder if Will would have pulled out prosthetic balls and rubbed them on Chad's kit, Step Brothers-style.

Interview was hilarious. I have always thought these two looked practically identical and it's awesome to see this.

You can easily tell Will isn't playing. He is off on alot of his hits and rolls (always behind the music).

He probably took some lessons beforehand to choregraph it though.

But the ending was hilarious.

The RHCP x The Roots performance was phenomenal though.
