'Brainstorm and Green needle' is the new 'Yanny and Laurel'

'Brainstorm and Green needle' is the new 'Yanny and Laurel'

Press Secretary Sarah Sanders is then confronted by the filmmaker who asks for her response to reports she hears Laurel.

Vice President Mike Pence, apparently blissfully unaware of the debate, only says, "Who's Yanny?"

Now, the Trump administration has hopped onto the dying meme a day late by making a video where various characters from the White House respond. "All I hear is Yanny", Sanders replies.

Ivanka Trump and Kellyanne Conway both hear "Laurel".

Now, the White House wants to be in on the debate. He's Team Yanny, guys.

The "laurel" or "yanny" fever - and it is a fever - sweeping across the nation reached its peak on Thursday when the White House released a video to social media with all of its key players weighing in on the least controversial viral controversy in recent memory. He hears 'covfefe', a word a invented previous year in a cryptic tweet.

Roland Szabo, 18, said he recorded the seemingly innocuous audio from a vocabulary website while doing a project for his school in the U.S. state of Georgia.

Regarding the Laurel or Yanny question, the "right" answer is Laurel since the clip was taken from a recording of the word "Laurel" from dictionary.com. The lowest of the three frequencies is absolutely essential for the L's and R's - the consonants that make up Laurel. The confusing audio clip is playing around with frequency and the words the listener hears will depend on the range of frequency that the person picks up from the clip.

The audio very clearly said "yanny".

She added that our brains want to "categorize" the elements of speech when they are ambiguous, as in this case passing them either into the "Laurel" box or "Yanny" box.

So, what do you hear?
