Chad Smith/Will Ferrell Drum-Off Announcement Coming Thursday

It's been more than two months since  Will Ferrell  and  Chad Smith  threw shade on each other in a staged hissy fit that culminated in a "drum-off" challenge, to crown the better drummer of the two lookalikes.  Now it looks like it's game on.

The  Red Hot Chili Peppers  drummer has posted an  image on his Twitter account  of mirror-image headshots of himself and Ferrell, with the caption, "It's happening. Announcement coming Thursday!"

The mock public beef started back in February when, following the Peppers' appearance at the Super Bowl, Ferrell jumped into a  Redditt Ask Me Anything  session with Smith, with whom he'd been trading public barbs over their physical resemblance to one another.  "I graciously accept your invitation to a drum battle," Ferrell declared.  "If we can raise $300,000 for Cancer for College I will face off with you in the greatest drum vs. cowbell showdown the world has ever seen. We can do it on stage at a Red Hot Chili Peppers concert or in front of a mutually convenient public library. Your call."

It took only days for fans to big-up Cancer for College's fundraising tally to the $300,000 mark, but since then there's been no word on a date for the showdown.   Cancer for College  is a charity that provides college scholarships for cancer survivors.

Where the challenge will take place is anyone's guess, for now.
