We learned a lot of interesting things about Will Ferrell in his Reddit AMA. Perhaps the most fascinating tidbit was that he is actually Red Hot Chili Peppers drummer Chad 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.
Whatever you believe, there is one person in the world not too happy with Ferrell’s insinuation. That would be Chad Smith.
Smith took to Instagram to challenge Ferrell to a drumming contest (video below), then earlier today during Smith’s own AMA, Ferrell accepted the challenge, commenting:
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?
To which Smith replied:
Hey Will, I’ve logged back in JUST to accept your challenge. Bring IT!
The battle is on, but it’s still unclear whether Smith would rather fight 100 duck-sized ducks or one horse-sized horse.
