There are two types of people in the world: who hears “Yanni” and who hears “Laurel”


Celebrities, brands and politicians are divided into camps because of the audio illusion that has become for the Internet a new “dress of discord”.

May 16 in social networks and the media drew attention to a short video, in which only one word sounds. But one part of people hears it as “Laurel” (“Laurel”), and the other – as “Yanny” (“Yanni”). This difference was explained by the frequency of the sound (“Yanni” – high frequencies, and “Laurel” – low), but it was too late: thousands of users began to argue which option is more correct, and share in the camps.

The dispute, which has become a new ” dress of discord “, has not bypassed celebrities. Actors, musicians and journalists shared with subscribers in Twitter what they heard. Also, they were joined by brands, the media and even state structures. we divided them into two teams and found people who had not decided on the choice.
