The  drum-off  between  Will Ferrell  and  Red Hot Chili Peppers  drummer  Chad Smith  isn't over -- it's about to pick up another contestant.

In an interview with  SPIN ,  Ferrell says that the pair are throwing down the gauntlet to "a third person that looks eerily similar to Chad and I. A third drummer out there." Smith then drops  Lars Ulrich 's name.

Ferrell tells SPIN, "Lars gets pissed because he gets mistaken for both me and Chad Smith. He can settle that score now, too."

There hasn't yet been a response from the  Metallica  drummer. 

As for the original drum-off, there are a few signed swag items left in Ferrell and Smith's charity sale which you can snag, if you act fast.

On the Chili Peppers  Facebook page , there's a link to  GumRoad.com , which is hosting the sale of cymbals and drum heads -- screened with the Smith/Ferrell Drum-Off graphic and personally signed by both.

A drumhead is $500 and a 20-inch Sabian cymbal is $1,000, with all proceeds going to charities designated by Smith and Ferrell: Little Kids Rock and Cancer for College, respectively. There are less than ten of both items still available.

If you missed the drum-off, you can still catch it on the official YouTube channel of  The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon.    If you'd prefer to make a direct donation to either or both charities, you can do so at  LittleKidsRock.org  or  CancerforCollege.org .
