Following Will Ferrell's statement that he and Chad Smith are actually the same person, the Chili Peppers drummer has thrown down the gauntlet for the actor to face off against him in a drum battle.

As Loudwire reports, Smith sent the following challenge to Ferrell:

"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!

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.

If he 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!"

To which Ferrell responded:

"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?"

Let battle commence!

    A hundred duck sized horses would be amusing. One horse sized duck would be terrifying. I'd rather fight the duck sized ducks though. Horses are bad news.

    Sorry for the double posts but I have to admit that I'm a bit of a sad being that this sort of stuff really lifts my day.

    This will never happen simply because of the tremendous difficulties associated with finding a "mutually convenient public library."

    Please, someone call Tom Hanks and Neil Peart's publicists and make that happen, too! Think of all of the charity money we can make from these dopplegangers!

    I would love to see Chad Smith as a stand in for Will's next movie, just awkwardly cut a scene where Will Ferrell's suddenly got a 5 o' clock shadow.
