Will Ferrell's music career seems to be booming. In one week he has received offers to play cowbell with Snoop Dogg and has been challenged to a high profile drum battle by the Red Hot Chili Peppers' Chad Smith.
In a Reddit AMA on Tuesday Ferrell addressed his resemblance to the drummer saying "The truth of the matter is there is no Will Ferrell. Only Chad Smith." Now the real Chad Smith has replied with an Instagram video for Funny or Die, ordering Ferrell to stop impersonating him and challenging the Anchorman 2 star to a drum battle. Smith even slammed Ferrell's drumming ability, saying "I've seen your skills. You don't got 'em." He also put up a golden cowbell as a prize for the winner.
Ferrell might need the cowbell before long. Snoop Dogg stopped by Tuesday's AMA to ask Ferrell to play cowbell on the rappers new album. In his answer Ferrell admitted that his musical competence may not be up to task. He told Snoop Dogg "I've also got some beats that I want to run by you. I'm warning you now, they're not good."
