Will Ferrell, Red Hot Chili Peppers Raise Enough Money For Drum Battle

It's official: the  Will Ferrell  drum battle against the  Red Hot Chili Peppers '  Chad Smith  is on.  Following the Peppers' appearance at the Super Bowl, Ferrell jumped into a recent  Redditt Ask Me Anything  session with Smith -- with whom he'd been trading public barbs over their physical resemblance to one another.  Ferrell said, "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."

On February 22, Cancer for College's fundraising tally hit the $300,000 mark and so the battle is on.  A date is expected to be announced in the near future -- whether it's at a Chili Peppers show or at a publis library is anyone's guess.

Cancer for College  is a charity providing college scholarships for cancer survivors.
