Lars Ulrich Accepts Ferrell/Smith Challenge


There’s no denying the fact that Will Ferrell and Chad Smith (drummer of Red Hot Chili Peppers) look very much alike. Well, Chad grew tired of the confusion and challenged Ferrell to a drum off! If you haven’t seen the video, check it out below:

Now, someone else has been pulled into the rivalry. In an interview with Spin, the duo called out Metallica drummer, Lars Ulrich, who had this to say:

It was a little lonely on the sidelines during the first drum-off, given the somewhat forced nature of the lookalike element between Chad Smith and Will Ferrell, when I’m TRULY the one carrying that dead-ringer gene around! As for any further drum-offs, I’m sure that with a bit of practice, I could give Chad a run for his money. But Will? That’s a whole different story. He rules the “bad-ass drummer universe.” I mean, you’re talking about a guy who’s so next level, actually, so beyond next level, that he may just be completely unreachable! That said, I’m definitely up for the challenge…Bring it on!!!

Keep an eye out for any updates on the next battle. We’ll be sure to post any news as it becomes available.
