Red Hot Chili Peppers' drummer Chad Smith is not a fan of actual chili peppers, but he did take part in the ALS Pepper Challenge, the latest campaign to raise awareness for the neurological disease.
Standing inside a Whole Foods produce department, he downed a chili pepper, but not before challenging his look-alike, actor Will Ferrell, and Pearl Jam guitarist Mike McCready to do the same thing.
Smith filmed the proceedings, which end with him choking.
