Laurel Vs. Yanny Debate Divides America

Do you hear 'Yanny' or 'Laurel'? This weird sound illusion is tearing the internet apart

Cloe Feldman, a vlogger from the United States, had no idea the havoc she would create when she posted a short clip to her social media platforms this week.

We also took to the streets to find out what Ottawans heard, and you can check out the responses in the video above.

One sound clip is reportedly tearing the internet apart based exclusively on fighting surrounding whether, when played, the listener hears "Laurel" or "Yanny".

The debate began on Reddit and expanded throughout social media.

The audio clip bends the question to what is heard, rather than what is seen, and people are fired up about it. Does the voice say "Laurel" or "Yanny"? But New Age musician Yanni was in the Yanny camp.

It's the audio equivalent of "the dress", which drove America insane back in 2015 as millions disputed whether the outfit was white and gold or black and blue.
