Hot Topic: Is This Voice Saying ‘Yanny’ or ‘Laurel’?

Remember when the internet lost its collective mind over the colour of a dress? (Which was definitely, 100% black and blue and only extreme weirdos saw it as white and gold).

Well, there’s a new personal perception debate raging online.

This time, people can’t seem to come to a consensus about whether this robot is saying ‘Yanny’ or ‘Laurel’:

Seriously, look at this uproar:

Anyway, the answer is both. Kinda. Depending on the speed and bass level, sometimes it sounds like ‘Yanny’, while at others it sounds like ‘Laurel’.

That said, the voice from the original upload at the top of this page inarguably says ‘Yanny’. All other opinions are incorrect.
