You know, every once in a while, one Internet trend or the other comes about and sweeps the world into a strange frenzy. And before you know it, you’re neck deep in a debate over a WhatsApp group chat because no one can agree on what’s really going on.
Remember when the exact same thing happened with that CLEARLY golden-white dress?
I don’t care what anyone says, it was blue-black… oh wait, I said golden and white earlier… or did I?
Or the color of these shoes, too?
Um, and let’s not forget that weird purple bird that kept bobbing its neck in the most absurd way.
Seriously, that was creepy.
Oh, or how about the time fidget spinners took over the world?
Let’s face it, we all wanted one because of how viral they were.
AND, people also went nuts over this weird pimple-popping toy.
Not gonna lie, I was kinda into it.
Hey, we’ve had our fair share of starting an Internet trend too. We had Ludo Star, remember?
Ah, the hub of great ludo games and initiating frandships. R.I.P friend.
Well, folks. Prepare to have your minds screwed around with again.
See, it all started with this tweet. This seemingly harmless, but havoc-wreaking tweet.
What do you hear?! Yanny or Laurel pic.twitter.com/jvHhCbMc8I

It’s simple, right? What do you hear? We all probably hear the same thing, right? RIGHT?
See, I hear Laurel. But apparently, there are people who hear Yanny. Matlab…kaise?
And this debate is pretty much all over Twitter right now.
Science can explain why some people hear Laurel and others hear Yanny https://t.co/wMXGB30cN8

A cloud of confusion seems to have settled upon people.
I heard laurel early morning as clear as anything. Now mid day I hear yanny just as clearly.
