Will Ferrell To Confront RHCP’s Chad Smith In Heroic Drum Battle

Will Ferrell challenges Chad Smith to an epic drum battle

Will Ferrell and Chad Smith have both had a phenomenal beginning to 2014.  Ferrell is coming off the tremendously successful Anchorman 2.  Chad Smith’s Red Hot Chili Peppers performed with Bruno Mars in the best Super Bowl halftime show in recent memory.  Building on this momentum, Ferrell mentioned earlier this week – during a Reddit AMA – how similar he looks to Smith.

It has been acknowledged many times that myself and Chad Smith, drummer for the Red Hot Chili Peppers, share a resemblance to each other. A lot of people think that it’s me playing for the Red Hot Chili Peppers. But that would be an insult to Chad Smith. The truth of the matter is there is no Will Ferrell. Only Chad Smith.

Smith, almost immediately afterward in his own AMA, quickly responded to Ferrell’s claims. “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.”  The smack-talking escalated into a full challenge in Smith’s own video.

It’s Chad… Stop impersonating me! Fact: I need you… drum battle, me and you. I’ve seen your skills. You don’t got ’em. Let’s go. Golden cowbell, winner – boom!

 

So what are the terms of this percussive showdown?  “If he [Ferrell] chooses to accept the drum battle…If I LOSE, I will work free of charge as his stand-in on his next film or wash his car for the duration of filming. But if I WIN, he has to give me free pedicures for a year. Gotta take care of your feet!”

Ferrell accepted Smith’s challenge, writing, “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?”

Smith replied: “Hey Will, I’ve logged back in JUST to accept your challenge. Bring IT!”

Donations to Cancer For College for the challenge can be made here.
