Lars Ulrich Accepts Chad Smith's and Will Ferrell's Challenge

Posted June 12th, 2014 @ 2:20pm

Lars Ulrich is up for the challenge.

The Metallica drummer has accepted the challenge that was presented to him by Red Hot Chili Peppers drummer Chad Smith and actor/comedian Will Ferrell.

Smith and Ferrell, the famous doppelgangers, battled it out on The Tonight Show.  Then, they set their sights on Ulrich.

Ulrich released a statement to Spin:

"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!!!"
