"I did not create Yanny vs Laurel." she said.

However, the video comes from the vocabulary.com pronunciation site, which is the pronunciation for the word.

After playing the clip, Kimmel polled his audience by asking what they heard. Post that she uploaded it to her Instagram story and soon enough another senior named Fernando Castro re-published the clip on to his Instagram story as a poll. "So whichever you're more dominant to is what you're going to lean to, and why you're so persistent on it, that's what you think you hear".

Douglas Beck, an audiologist at Oticon, told National Geographic that there is a difference between hearing and listening.

According to Tinkler, the changes come depending on what kind of technology a person is using to listen to the clip. Stephen King tweeted he first heard "Yanny", only to switch sides a few hours later.

"When I analyzed the recording of Laurel, that third resonance is very high for the L. It drops for the R and then it rises again for the L", he said.
