Chad Smith/Will Ferrell Drum-Off
As reported by pearldrum.com, among other outlets, after months of speculation, Red Hot Chili Peppers drummer Chad Smith and comedian Will Ferrell will face off in person to resolve an ongoing “argument” over who is the better drummer. The event is scheduled to take place live on The Late Night Show Starring Jimmy Fallon on Thursday, May 22. The two celebrities, who, it’s been noted for years, share a certain facial resemblance, have taken advantage of the situation to help raise funds for the organizations Cancer for College and Little Kids Rock. The pair recently exceeded a requested donation goal of $300,000, which they set as a stipulation for the public battle to occur. While prizes will be offered at a later date to raise money for the two charities, including a specially designed T-shirt and custom-designed cowbells, Smith has also revealed a personal side bet. “If I win, he has to wash my car for a month and give me pedicures. If I lose, I have to be his stand-in for his next film.” For more information, go to cancerforcollege.org.
