Last week, Red Hot Chili Peppers drummer, Chad Smith, challenged his doppelgänger, Will Ferrell, to a drum off. Ferrell has accepted.
The two went back and forth in Instagram videos, first with Ferrell saying that he was in fact Smith, and than Smith replying with the challenge. During a Reddit Ask Me Anything session that Smith had a few days ago, Ferrell wrote to the drummer, saying “Hi, Chad. Will Ferrell here. I saw your video and I graciously accept your invitation to a drum battle. If we can raise $300,000 for Cancer For College I will face off with you in the greatest drum vs. cowbell showdown the world has ever seen.”
“We can do it on stage at a Red Hot Chili Peppers concert or in front of a mutually convenient public library. Your call. Also, would you rather fight a hundred duck sized ducks or one horse sized horse?” continued Ferrell.
Though there is no date or time set for the battle, it seems that both sides are willing to fight, and with no promoters involved, fans can hope that the drum-off happens sooner than later.
