Yanny or Laurel” may be an illusion (auditory) that became popular in mid-2018. This audio-related illusion was from a brief sound recording that sounds of two words.

When the audio became viral, almost the American internet users were divided into two groups. The first group claimed that the audio sound “Laurel” while the other group opposes the “Yanny” word.
