Yanny or Laurel? Trump says, 'I hear covfefe'

Yanny or Laurel? Trump says, 'I hear covfefe'

The video featured staff members such as press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders and counselor Kellyanne Conway poking fun at themselves over a peppy musical track. It's no surprise that it went viral, because anyone you play the clip to tends to hears one word or the other, and usually finds it inconceivable that anyone else could hear it differently.

The collective sensory experiment causing a Twitter tizzy mushroomed from a short audio clip originally published by a high school student on Reddit.

Now, a new audio clip has surfaced that appears to have a similar ability to trick different people's brains into hearing different things.

But, you have some closure to know what the original recording said.

To make it more clear, humans typically pay attention to three different frequencies when they're listening to speech.

A user wrote,"Does anyone hear both yanny and laurel or is it just me?"

Sharma said Pakistan is their hostile neighbour which always is in a process to infiltrate terrorists into this side. This time it is not going to be an exception. "Pakistan is trying hard to push them into Indian side", he said.

In the light-hearted video, staffers are asked if they hear "Laurel" in the audio clip, or if they hear "Yanny". Vice-President Mike Pence too weighs in on the heated Internet debate.

A straw poll carried out among staff in AFP's Washington bureau counted 17 for Yanny, and 14 for Laurel.

Turns out, the new auditory illusion, Yanny or Laurel has been breaking the internet.

How you listen to the recording will also affect what you hear. "When the low frequencies are more emphasised, people will hear "Laurel", Crum said.

What made it viral is that while some people thought it's obviously Laurel, the rest were convinced that the robot voice was saying Yanny.
