In the viral clip, a robotic voice says a single word that has divided the online community, as some people swear they hear "yanny" while others can only hear "laurel".

"My wife heard yanny".

"Yanny.... I listened 10 times and cant figure out how anyone hears laurel", one person Tweeted. "I hear laurel", wrote Ryan Switzer.

To sum it up, different people hear sounds in different pitches, which is why the Internet couldn't decide on which word, "Yanny" or "Laurel", the recording was saying.

Moreover, some people have added to the confusion by somehow saying they can hear both. But even after listening to this, all I'm able to hear is "Yanny".

That explanation was roundly dismissed by many on Twitter, however a select few claimed they managed to hear both Yanny and Laurel. Back in February 2016, the phenomenon that is simply known as 'The Dress' happened and changed our lives forever. Some of your friends saw a white and gold dress (umm, what?) while you saw blue and black.
