Donald Trump’s team have made a ‘Laurel or Yanny’ video and it’s hard to watch
 Add to favorites

After the viral success of the ‘Laurel or Yanny’ audio illusion, now Donald Trump’s White House team have jumped on board the trend and shared a video of their own.

Originally posted on Reddit, the audio illusion seems to be saying one word over and over again – with some listeners hearing the word ‘Yanny’ repeated while others are hearing ‘Laurel’. The debate raged fiercely across social media and beyond.

What do you hear?! Yanny or Laurel

This week has now seen the key members of the Trump administration take part in the challenge. The video features the likes of Ivanka Trump, Kellyanne Conway, Sarah Huckabee Sanders, and Mike Pence all giving their verdict – taking the time to take a dig at ‘fake news’ CNN before the President himself makes an appearance with a callback to the ‘COVFEFE’ incident.

“The Yanny/Laurel sound is meant to be ambiguous because each sound has a similar timing and energy content – so in principle it’s confusable,” Professor David Alais from the University of Sydney told The Guardian.

“All of this goes to highlight just how much the brain is an active interpreter of sensory input, and thus that the external world is less objective than we like to believe.”

The debate harks back to 2015’s ‘The Dress’, which saw the internet become obsessed with the colour-changing, optical illusion.
