Date set for Chad Smith and Will Ferrell’s drum battle

Mark your calendars, world! On May 22, there will be a drum battle between Will Ferrell and Chad Smith of the Red Hot Chili Peppers.

Where, you ask? Duh, there’s only one place something of this magnitude can take place – The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon, of course!

I think we should have a Tina Fey/Beyoncé dance off, while we are at it! Jimmy Fallon, make it happen!

Earlier this year week Ferrell made light of the uncanny similarity in looks between him and Smith while hosting a Reddit Ask Me Anything, which led to the Red Hot Chili Peppers member challenging him to a musical duel. The drum battle will take place on May 22 on US television show The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon.

Ferrell accepted the challenge during another AMA, 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 (£182,000) 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?”.
