Yanny or Laurel? Trump says, 'I hear covfefe'

  • The White House on Thursday released a video featuring various members of the staff weighing

While the Obama White House released light videos, the Trump presidency has heralded a more polarized era, and so the attempt at a light viral video by the Trump team did not escape attention.

Do you hear "Yanny" or "Laurel"? that is the question now raging on social media and Danny Aronson, CEO of EVEN, the company creating headphones known as "glasses for your ears" has explained the technical reasons for the phenomenon.

"I hear covfefe", Trump said in a video posted to Twitter Thursday night, seemingly poking fun of himself after he tweeted "covfefe" one year ago.

Turns out, the new auditory illusion, Yanny or Laurel has been breaking the internet.

A lot of people took to Twitter to reveal whether they heard Yanny or Laurel in the video.

Ruthless and bloodthirsty gangs roam the open roads and the tyrannical Authority seek to rule who remains with an iron fist. So far I haven't seen anything particularly interesting that makes my ears perk up, but I'll be keeping an eye on this one.

Not so, say White House deputy press secretary Hogan Gidley and director of strategic communications Mercedes Schlapp.

Vice President Mike Pence, apparently blissfully unaware of the debate, only says, "Who's Yanny?" The word Yanny, the second frequency, has nearly exactly the same pattern as the L, R, L in Laurel.

Some hear Yanny, some hear Laurel. She fires back, "Clearly you're getting your information from CNN because that's fake news". 'All I hear is Yanny'.

The video ends with a cameo by President Trump who delivers the punchline.
