The recently announced Chad Smith vs. Will Ferrell drum showdown is getting really close to actually happening, as RHCP drummer has reportedly accepted to battle the comedian once the $300,000 Cancer for College charity goal has been reached.
As the campaign's Prizeo page indicates, the $277,000 mark was officially crossed today (February 13), leaving us less than $23,000 away from the epic battle. Make your donations here and help a good cause while you contribute to the greatest showdown ever.
As reported, the "drum vs. cowbell showdown" idea popped up during Chad's Reddit AMA session. "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!" the drummer told Ferrell.
The comedian's response was soon to follow. "Hi, Chad. Will Ferrell here," he kicked off. "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?"
