LINCOLN, N.E. — Dozens of people named Josh held a battle over their name in Nebraska on Saturday.

The event in Lincoln was organized by Josh Swain from Arizona, who was behind a viral meme challenging people on Facebook to duel for ownership of the name.

The Joshes battled it out using pool noodles, eventually giving the title to a young boy dubbed by the crowd as “Tiny Josh.” One post claiming to be from his father thanked the people who participated in the event.

This video, taken by KLKN-TV reporter Yousef Nasser, shows the “absolute mayhem” as dozens of men strike each other with pool noodles.
