RHCP Chad Smith and Will Ferell Headed To Battle?

It's a long-standing fact that Red Hot Chili Peppers drummer Chad Smith and actor Will Ferrell share an uncanny resemblance. The pair are both well aware that they look alike, and when Smith appeared on The Tonight Show with Chickenfoot in 2009, he wore a t-shirt with the text "I Am Not Will Ferrell." Well, now it seems the time has come for the two doppelgangers to meet in public.
Last week Smith posted a video video via Funny or Die where he joked about Ferrell's lack of drumming abilities, saying "I've seen your skills. You don't got 'em." This prompted Ferrell to respond via reddit: "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?"
Apparently the battle royale is a go, since Smith tweeted a picture while donating blood with the caption "Gettin juiced for the drum battle." Although there's no word yet on when and where this showdown will take place, it's certain to be one of the funniest events of the year.
