It's Neither Yanny Nor Laurel - It's Covfefe!

The Yanny vs. Laurel debate took a dark turn when the U.S. Air Force thought it would be a good idea to use it in a now-deleted tweet that bragged about repressing a Taliban offensive.

The answer is causing people to disagree about which name they hear.

Of course, the scientific explanation won't kill the internet chatter, so if you're hearing Laurel vs. Yanny, it's doesn't necessarily mean that you're wrong (and vice versa) - even if the internet says otherwise. "But I could deflect and divert to Yanny if you need me to", adds the woman who coined the phrase "alternative facts".

Everyone's losing their minds over Laurel and Yanny, but I'm over here dazed and confused about the next big audio illusion.

There is a difference between what you hear, and why you hear it.

"Clearly you're getting your information from CNN because that's fake news", Sanders said to the cameraman, who said it was "reported that you hear Laurel".

Ivanka Trump, the president's daughter, opened up the video, declaring that it was "so clearly Laurel!".

The debate is this: a distorted audio bite plays and those listening in either hear "Yanny" or "Laurel". "That's why some people may be able to switch between the two". Check it out here and find out what you hear here.

"Like a radio, our brains can selectively tune into them, once we know what to listen out for".
