We don't know who or when, but it appears to be a classic sibling rivalry for a baseball and a bat. Watch the fighting tactics closely. There is the tossing of brother's prized hat in an effort to force his surrender. A sisterly kick in the groin. A cry for mom to help. And baby sissy taking part with no chance of victory.

"The Battle" was uploaded to YouTube in August 2014, but started trending on February 22, 2016, according to Lead Stories' Trendolizer.
