It all started when Chad Smith of the Red Hot Chili Peppers put up a video on Instagram demanding funnyman Will Ferrell quit impersonating him. He then challenged Ferrell to a drum-off.
Smith further goaded the comedian by reiterating his challenge on Reddit. Ferrell lost no time in taking up the challenge replying, “We can do it on stage at a Red Hot Chili Peppers concert or in front of a mutually convenient public library. Your call.” Following the Reddit thread, the promised showdown took an intriguing turn with Snoop Dogg volunteering to referee. No date or location’s set yet—we can’t wait!
