Chad Smith of the Red Hot Chili Peppers takes the ALS Hot Pepper Challenge

Remember the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge from back in 2015? 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.

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).

Who better to get things started in the music sphere than Chad Smith, drummer for the Red Hot Chili Peppers? Weirdly, though, Chad doesn’t like hot peppers.

Steve Gleason I (reluctantly) accept your has raised over $500K thru the challenge. I challenge you & Will Ferrell to do the same!
