    I actually have decided this is worse than Brexit for dividing us. :D The number of people who have looked at me like I'm insane for thinking it's Laurel today is ridiculous. People shouting that I'm winding them up and I better get proof that I'm not...

    What do YOU hear?

    It's so much weirder than the dress debacle for me. I can kind of see both perspectives with the dress - but I can hear nothing but LAUREL in this one.

    Have been trying to work out if it's genetic or male-female or age dependent or what today. It's bonkers.

    It sounds NOTHING LIKE Laurel! That’s quite clearly a Y at the beginning

    Apparently you hear Yanny if you can hear high frequencies. Which I thought was to do with age, but I've seen older people saying they hear Yanny, so fuck knows.

    I heard Yanny the first time I heard it. I then focussed and could switch to Laurel.

    I few hours later, I can only hear Laurel.

    EDIT: ah, I just need to turn the volume up

    OK I just tried it with headphones and I can vaguely hear a very quiet robotic Yanny behind the VERY LOUD AND PROMINENT Laurel

    I hear both. I can toggle between the two but I also hear both in succession.

    The only way I can hear Laurel is in the pitch shifted versions. No matter how hard I try it’s 100% yanny in the “normal” version

    I can't understand where that Laurel comes from, it's Yanny or whatever it is, but it doesn't sound anything close to Laurel.

    Laurel Club is currently MATHS CLUB. Undeniable PROOF that the cleverest people hear Laurel.

    Well I’d much rather be a member of YANNY CLUB given that membership is solely open to AESTHETES :disco:

    Yanny if it’s quiet
    Laurel if it’s loud
    Miss Jackson if you’re nasty
    Yannie are you ok?
    In all other cases, Vanjie

    Another weird Twitter thing. It’s just two words played over each other, left to the internet to fight over the single answer.

    Why is this even a thing? A meme for some shitty probably American college student to write about in his thesis on suppose psychology and possibly get on local news after it went viral totally by surpriiiise

    I can only hear Laurel (it’s very clear). The Yanny people must have been dropped on their heads or something.

    Well first of all it’s laurel because yanny isn’t a word and this is clearly from one of those word pronunciation sites

    When I first heard it I could only hear laurel, a few hours later I could only hear yanny - to the extent that I thought there were two different videos :bruised:

    Now I can hear both - not at the same time but if I want to hear either one I can. It’s a gift.

    Huh? I only hear Yanny.

    With the dress one I initially saw white and gold but it was kind of like a magic eye poster in that the longer I stared at it in a certain way, it turned to black and blue.

    I can only hear Laurel.

    And it’s definitely Laurel. I’ve been listening to Britney for 20 years - I know robotic voices.
