Are you Team Yanny or Team Laurel?

Tuesday was voting day in Pennsylvania and three other states as the country undergoes one of the most contentious times in recent American history, but it was a different nationwide debate that captivated the minds of citizens as returns rolled in:

Do you hear “Yanny” or “Laurel?"

Just as “The dress” of 2015 sparked debates across social media, offices, and classrooms, giving way to a hundred different think pieces, this audio discrepancy is already having the same effect.

First posted on Reddit and then Twitter, the audio clip streams of seemingly distorted recording of someone saying … something … that has people divided.

As of Tuesday night, the Twitter debate was alive and well as users weighed in on being Team Yanny or Team Laurel.

Just as the blue-and-black vs. white-and-gold dress debate turned out to have some reasoning and science behind it, many have already delved into what makes some people hear “Laurel” versus “Yanny,” and which one was actually said in the original record.

One expert told CNN that the poor quality of the recording lends itself to the debate. Depending on the pitch of the recording, you can hear either word, as demonstrated below.

An expert analysis of the clip, however, showed that it was most likely “Laurel” during its original recording, according to CNN.

Regardless… which do you hear?
