Have you seen everyone on social media talking about the Josh Fight Meme? Well, here’s what it’s all about.
As you’ve been scrolling through Twitter over the past few days, you’ve probably seen the viral Josh Meme.
Everyone is talking about a fight that’s happening between loads of different people who are all named Josh, but why?
Here’s the Josh Fight meme explained!
The Josh Fight Meme started in 2020
If you’re a little confused by the Josh Fight meme, don’t worry you’re not the only one.
It all relates to a post that went viral back in 2020 that set up a fight between seven people called Josh.
A social media user sent a Facebook message to loads of people with the name Josh that said: “You’re probably wondering why I’ve gathered you all here today.”
One of the Josh’s then replied with “because we all share the same names?” to which they responded by setting up a fictional fight, writing:
“Precisely, 4/24/2021, 12:00 PM, meet at these coordinates, (40.8223286, -96.7982002) we fight, whoever wins gets to keep the name, everyone else has to change their name, you have a year to prepare, good luck.”
Now, a whole year has passed and the date of the fictional fight is getting close, so the meme is going viral on Twitter again.
Now the fight is getting close
We’re just four days away from April 24th 2021, the date when the fight between the seven Josh’s is due to take place.
Of course the meme was originally supposed to be a joke, but social media users are now eagerly waiting to find out whether anybody called Josh will actually turn up at the coordinates at 12PM on April 24th.
One Twitter user wrote: “I can’t stop thinking about the Josh fight.”
“4 more days until all Josh’s fight to the death,” wrote another.
A third person tweeted: “Before I go to bed, little reminder that it’s four days until 4/24/21 which is the day that people named Josh will fight. Wish me luck, send me some care packages so I win.”
So, where is the fight due to take place?
Josh Fight Meme location revealed
If you type the map coordinates in the original meme into a location finder, you can find out the exact GPS location of the Josh Fight, and what you’ll find is pretty shocking.
Typing 40.8223286 Latitude and -96.7982002 Longitude into gps-coordinates.net greets you with the phrase “Josh Fight” and the address “Northwest 56th Street, Lancaster County, NE 68524, United States of America”.
So, the Josh Fight is taking place in a random field in Nebraska, USA.
The person behind the Josh Fight is unknown, but they’ve certainly gone to extreme lengths to register the Josh Fight under the official coordinates.
Will anyone called Josh actually turn up at the Nebraska field on April 24th? We’ll have to wait and see.
