People are divided over whether they hear “Laurel” or “Yanny” in a viral video that seemingly originated on Reddit and has gotten a second life on Twitter.
Sorry to say it, but both parties are correct.
There are two distinct voices saying both names.
The voice saying “Laurel” speaks at a lower volume than the voice saying “Yanny.”
A helpful video breaks it down sonically.
Sorry to say it, but this is about to ruin your day.
