Do you hear "Laurel" or "Yanny?" It’s the biggest social media debate since #TheDress phenomenon of 2015, or the fight over whether or not a hotdog is a sandwich.
Redditor RolandCamry posted the original clip on Saturday. Three days later, social media influencer and vlogger Cloe Feldman started the latest country-dividing conversation on Tuesday when she posted on Instagram and Twitter, "What do you hear?! Yanny or Laurel," accompanied by the recording of a computerized voice.
Some brands have entered the viral debate, confidently stating what name they hear, or making sure the only thing consumers hear is the name of their company.
Here’s what 18 brands are hearing…

Please don't call 911 to ask if we're hearing "Laurel" or "Yanny". The only thing we hear is the creation of another bad hashtag. (And Laurel. We're definitely hearing Laurel).— Philadelphia Police (@PhillyPolice) May 16, 2018
