  • Is This Voice Saying 'Yanny' or 'Laurel?'

Twitter user and vlogger Cloe Feldman has kicked off the world's most frustrating debate, uploading an audio recording of a robot saying a word.

So why do we all hear different things?

"My wife heard yanny". "And I want to know if the people hearing Yanny saw a blue and black dress and the people hearing Laurel saw a white and gold one", she wrote. "However, your brain can't handle both at once, so it picks one and that is the version you hear".

Laurel or Yanny? Yanny or Laurel?
