    Ok, at the beginning of the clip, I heard it say Yanny twice, then immediately after you said Laurel, I heard Laurel. I then hit rewind to the beginning again, and heard Laurel where I originally heard Yanny. Weirded me right out. My wife can also hear both, but for her, it depends which way she is turned (to where the sound is coming from).
