An audio snippet with just two syllables has ignited an internet meltdown, dividing social media users into staunchly opposed camps: do you hear "Yanny" or "Laurel?"

"Yanni", he says with a chuckle, perhaps delighted that the viral phenomenon has greatly improved his Google rankings in the past few days.

Szabo then sent the clip to a friend who created the Instagram poll asking if people heard "Laurel" or "Yanny".

The hairs take sounds we receive and turn them into messages for the brain.

As for the dress that caused an earlier commotion, some people said it was white and gold, while others saw blue and black.
