Team Yanny and Team Laurel. From there, Cloe Feldman, a YouTube vlogger, spread the question further on Twitter.

There are many reasons as to why you heard Laurel or Yanny.

To put it simply, it has do with frequencies and how people hear them differently. While many Hollywood celebrities such as Mindy Kaling and Sarah Hyland are in the "Yanny" camp, others such as TV hosts Ellen DeGeneres and Stephen Colbert are convinced they heard "Laurel".
