It's clearly Laurel.

I never had friends later on like the ones I had when I was twelve. Jesus, does anyone?

Just what the internet needs, something else to argue about.

In no situation, in any format, do I hear Yanny.

It’s different depending on how it’s played. The first one on that page doesn’t sound like either to me.

Pretty clear to me in most that it’s Laurel though.

Changing some of the bass, etc..I heard yanny some.

But without doing that, it’s laurel.

It drives me crazy that I'm damn near the oldest person in the office and NO ONE else had even heard about this.  Change your information gathering methods.  These are the types of idiots that get their news from cable. 

 

And its laurel.  At no point do I hear Yanny.

The first two times I heard Yanny but every time since it’s been Laurel.
