Chad Smith of the Red Hot Chili Peppers takes the ALS Hot Pepper Challenge
The new thing is the Hot Pepper Challenge, which is just like it sounds: people agree to eat insanely hot peppers (Scotch bonnets are among the worst/best). Steve Gleason I (reluctantly) accept your #ALSPepperChallenge @ALSTDI has raised over $500K thru the challenge. The Internet was swamped with videos of people dumping ice water over the heads in an effort to raise money for amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, otherwise known as Lou Gehrig’s disease, the condition Stephen Hawking lives with and one that killed my brother-in-law. Weirdly, though, Chad doesn’t like hot peppers. I challenge you @MikeMcCreadyPJ & Will Ferrell @funnyordie to do the same! @TeamGleason pic.twitter.com/6BwIQGdmRt

Anyone else? Who better to get things started in the music sphere than Chad Smith, drummer for the Red Hot Chili Peppers? Remember the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge from back in 2015?
