Alright, Roommates. Do you guys remember when there was an online fiasco about whether or not that dress was black or blue or white and gold? Well, either the internet is trolling hard, or there is some real witchcraft going on today 😭
So, the latest debate that has taken over social media is whether or not you hear #Laurel or #Yanny in this clip. It appears that a majority of people hear “Laurel” while there are a few who swear before the face of God that they hear “Yanny.”
Since it’s driving us nuts, we’re gonna let y’all tell us what YOU hear!

I can't even describe how clearly I hear #LAUREL. Like the clearest pronunciation maybe I've ever heard of the word. And the people I'm with right now ARE FUCKING HEARING #YANNY . Like what the serious fuck? Am I having a stroke?

Finally, an explanation 🙌🏾🙌🏾
Yanny/Laurel MYSTERY SOLVED! I messed with the audio file and discovered that basically, the lower frequencies say “Laurel,” and the higher frequencies say “Yanny.” Here’s some audio I messed with that lets you hear both sides. #yannyvslaurel #yannyorlaurel #yanny #laurel pic.twitter.com/eyybCNLnQi
