Will Ferrell Accepts Chad Smith's Challenge To A Drum Off
Posted by Joseph Lee on 02.11.2014
NME reports that Will Ferrell has accepted the drum battle challenge from Red Hot Chili Peppers drummer Chad Smith. Last week, Ferrell joked about the similiar appearance of the two men during an Ask Me Anything session on Reddit. Ferrell didn't reply immediately but accepted the offer on the condition that they raise money for a cancer charity.
During an AMA hosted by Smith, Ferrell wrote: "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 (£182,000) 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?"
Smith added: "I have to comment that I think Mr. Ferrell is a delusional imposter. It seems to me that he has gone off his meds and he needs to seek professional help because I am obviously more talented and handsome than he is. You know, his cowbell work is well-documented, but his drumset skills are nominal based on Step Brothers the film. Other than wiping his testicles on the drums, which of course I give high marks to."
