We have our “white and gold vs “brown and blue” debate of 2018 — and this time instead of a viral dress it involves a viral audio clip.
People on the internet can’t seem to come to a consensus about a clip in which a computer-generated voice can be heard saying a two-syllable word.
Some people hear it as “yanny” while others hear it as “laurel.”
What do you hear?
Help settle an office debate: Do you hear "Laurel" or "Yanny" in this clip? pic.twitter.com/8AtiS2RLN5

Here’s what other people are hearing:
it's so clearly laurel. I can't even figure out how one would hear yanny.

My fam and I were listening to it at the same time and I heard laurel while they all heard yanny. They thought I was crazy https://t.co/wqCfoxGkql
