'Brainstorm or Green Needle?' is the new, even weirder, 'Laurel or Yanny?'

Yanny or Laurel? Trump weighs in on raging internet debate

Yanny or Laurel? Trump weighs in on raging internet debate

At the end of the video, President Trump has the final word: "I hear covfefe", he says, a reference to a cryptic tweet posted from his account in 2017.

You've had to had seen it by now: The newest internet debate of Laurel versus Yanny.

"I hear covfeve", Trump says from his desk in the Oval Office, referencing the infamous typo published on his Twitter account previous year.

But the internet did not rest on its yannys (or laurels. depending.) when it comes to media which plays tricks on the mind. Whoever is recording the video says to Sarah Huckabee Sanders, "Sarah it's been reported that you hear 'Laurel, ' how do you respond?"

Thanks to the team from ASAPScience who unpack the perplexing audio clip and explain in detail why some of us hear "Yanny" and some of us hear "Laurel".

When the pitch is turned down 30% you'll hear Yanny, when it is increased 30% you'll clearly hear Laurel.

Vice President Mike Pence even made an appearance in the clip, simply asking 'Who's Yanny?' If you hear "Yanny" you're picking up on the higher frequency.

White House counselor Kellyanne Conway pokes fun at her endless willingness to spin and bend the truth for the president, saying, "It's Laurel".

So, what do you hear?

The Press Secretary blamed his information on CNN calling it "fake news" and clarified she could only hear Yanny. "All I hear is Yanny", Sanders replied.
