Red Hot Chilli Peppers' drummer Chad Smith threw down the gauntlet. Will Ferrell picked it up, and the two will have a drum off  to "prove once and for all who is the real Chad Smith." Should the duo be able to raise $300,000, (as of this post, $257,000 has been raised) they will do battle March 3 & 4. All the money will go to Cancer for College.

Smith and Ferrell have been frequenting the pages of Reddit, and even Snoop Doggy Dogg Lion has offered his services as a judge. Boom, my mind has exploded.

If you're feeling generous, you can donate to Will and Chad's cause and win prizes like sunscreen, or even a signed photo of Ron Burgundy.

A grand prize winner will have a special getaway with Will Ferrell who says, "At the event, I will not only show you how to play golf (if you are at all interested), but we might possibly race golf carts, make sock puppets and enjoy a sensible lunch together with only the finest bottled water."
