For the past few days, everyone has been talking about a video clip where a guy is saying a name. Some people are hearing Yanny and some people are hearing Laurel.
It turns out a high school freshman in Georgia named Katie Hetzel got the debate going last Friday while she was studying for a literature class. One of the vocabulary words she needed to look up was Laurel.
So she looked up the definition on the website Vocabulary.com then played a clip of how to pronounce it and that's where the audio came from.
However, she didn't hear Laurel though, she heard Yanny. Then she played it for some of her classmates, and they couldn't agree. So she posted it on Instagram, other people started re-posting it and that's how it all got started.
