IN what is literally the most ridiculous thing to hit the internet in 2018 – and that’s saying something – a simple audio clip has sent shockwaves through the online world.

Shared by YouTube vlogger Cloe Coutoure, the seemingly simple clip has divided online users across the globe – and has a whole lot more asking why.


The divide appears to occur when people either hear the word Yanny or the word Laurel.

Experts are also divided on the cause of the phenomenon, however some say it depends on the pitch to which you are most accustomed.

Others still are left wondering if this is in fact the End of Days.
