UPDATE: Lars Ulrich Accepts Smith and Ferrell Drum Challenge

Chad Smith and Will Ferrell Challenge Lars Ulrich to Drum Battle
Chad Smith and Will Ferrell Challenge Lars Ulrich to Drum Battle
The lookalikes suggested the Metallica drummer should take part in a second drum battle.

We thought the matter had been settled on the Jimmy Fallon show, but the saga continues as the Red Hot Chili Peppers drummer Chad Smith and funnyman Will Ferrell throw down the gauntlet to Metallica's Lars Ulrich.

Speaking to Spin magazine, Ferrell said, "Lars gets mistaken for both me and Chad Smith. He can settle that score now, too".

Although they have yet to hear back from Ulrich, Smith noted, "There it is. The gauntlet is down."

UPDATE! Lars Ulrich has sent a statement to Spin magazine, saying "I'm definitely up for the challenge... Bring it on!!!"

Chad Smith has since offered advice to Lars, telling him to "load up on cowbells!"

Smith and Ferrell's recent drum duel took place after they raised $300,000 for charity, and was a challenge to prove they weren't the same person. You can watch the full drum battle below!
