Watch Will Ferrell Hilariously Crash Brad Paisley Concert As His Loser Brother ‘Gary Paisley’
You’ve gotta see their cover of Van Halen’s “Hot for Teacher.”
Brad Paisley apparently has an estranged older brother named Gary Paisley, and Gary looks a LOT like Will Ferrell in a bad wig.
Actually he is Will Ferrell, the straight-faced king of random comedy. Saturday, he crashed Paisley’s set at a charity concert and basically took over.
Paisley posted a pic from the event on his Instagram with the caption: “Last night, my older brother Gary Paisley made a rare appearance…he’s a little off.”
The audience loved it, though. Ferrell had a beer in one hand and he took the mic with the other and growled, “Thanks, Brad for not leaving me a ticket tonight. But I got in anyway. Anyway, that’s my younger brother. Despite our estrangement, I’m still really proud of him. He never lets me sing a song, but whatever.”
Ferrell and Paisley then performed a surprisingly scorching cover of “Hot for Teacher” with Guns N’ Roses’ bassist Duff McKagan, Red Hot Chili Peppers drummer—and Will Ferrell lookalike—Chad Smith on the drums. Check it out:
The whole goofy thing was for a good cause, though—Will Ferrell’s charity, www.cancerforcollege.org.
If we have to put up with five minutes of Will Ferrell shirtless to help cancer survivors, it’s probably worth it.
