confused woman

3:26pm 16th May 2018

An audio clip, shared on Twitter and Instagram, has divided the internet into two teams - team Yanny and team Laurel.

It's a familiar tale similar to the iconic 'black and blue' or 'white and gold' dress but this time it's not our eyes playing tricks on us.

People all over the world are up in arms about whether this clip is saying Yanny or Laurel.

Listen carefully...

The video currently has over 8million views and counting!

Many of the listeners/viewers are unable to understand how either team hears anything different to what they hear.

So what are your thoughts?

Yanny or Laurel?
