It doesn’t take much to divide the internet, these days. First, it was over the black and blue or white and gold dress (#TeamBlackandBlue,) and now it’s over an audio clip of a voice saying “Yanny” or “Laurel.”
Vlogger Cloe Feldman posted a four-second clip on Twitter on Monday asking users what they heard.

Wait… I don’t get it. Is this a joke? It very clearly says “yanny” and in no way could it possibly be misheard as “laurel”…am I losing my mind?

The creator of the viral sensation spoke out and sorry to say “Yanny” listeners, he confirmed he said “Laurel.”
Are you #TeamYanny or #TeamLaurel?
