We have a new version of “The Dress.”

On Tuesday, the internet, offices across America and even researchers spent their time debating whether a sound clip uttered the word “Yanny” or “Laurel.”

Listen to the original clip in the tweet below.

The clip originally surfaced on Reddit before it found its way to Twitter, according to Time.

No matter what you heard, there’s been a fierce debate about whether the voice says “Yanny” or “Laurel.” This reporter heard “Yanny” on first listen but then heard “Laurel” later Tuesday night.

Social media went crazy debating the news.
