Laurel or Yanny

Which one do you hear? Laurel or Yanny is an auditory illusion of a recording of a vocabulary word with added background sounds. When people listen to it, some hear "Laurel" while others insist they hear "Yanny."

Historical perspective: The clip and original “Laurel or Yanny” poll were posted on Instagram, Reddit and other sites by high school students in May 2018, who said that it had been recorded from a vocabulary website playing through the speakers on a computer. Similar to "The Dress" that some people saw as gold and white but other people saw as blue and black in February 2015, Laurel or Yanny divided the Internet once again.
