Move over 'yanny-laurel' debate, the 'brain storm-green needle' is here

  • Trump hears ‘covfefe’ as White House aides weigh in on 'Yanny' and 'Laurel'

Ivanka Trump is the first to weigh in, claiming it's "so clearly Laurel", before giggling for the camera.

The White House hasn't escaped the "Laurel/Yanny" debate after it posted a video of US President Donald Trump and staff weighing in on the social media storm.

"Sarah it's been reported that you hear Laurel, how do you respond?" a person is heard asking Sanders. Why were people hearing two different words from a single audio clip? Sarah Huckerbee Sanders implies the answer is probably whatever CNN says it isn't. It spread like wildfire after Chloe posted it on Twitter.

Researchers say those who hear higher frequency sounds are the ones who hear "yanny". For example, what you hear might have to do with your speakers, headphones, or the acoustics in the room.

Personally, we can hear nothing but "green needle", but do let us know whether you're Team Brain or Teem Needle.

If you run it through a High Pass Filter, and isolate Yanny, so that your brain knows what to look for, then it becomes hard to unhear and you start to hear both of them at the same time, so there is perhaps some mental perception involved as well. If you hadn't been introduced to the possibility of hearing "Yanny" or "Laurel" you may not have heard either of these words.

Decide for yourself by watching the clip above, via the White House. This just shows that people on internet will debate on anything and everything and hence it becomes viral.
