What do you hear: Yanny or Laurel?

- There's a new debate taking over social media and it's not about what you can see, it's about what you can hear.

Cloe Feldman posted a recording on social media asking people what they hear yanny or laurel and the internet is losing it.

Even Houston Texans star JJ Watt joined in the debate tweeting, "Yanny vs. Laurel is starting some real fights." 

I asked, but no word on what he actually hears.

UPDATE: JJ heard Yanny but thanks to his little brother Derek, he hears Laurel. Yet another convert.

Meanwhile, the FOX 26 newsroom is completely split on the issue.

I have no idea how anyone else can hear anything but "Laurel" -- even when I heard a change in the bass level provided by another tweet.

Within an hour, I've been able to convert four of my colleagues after playing the clip ad nauseum.

Some of them heard "Gary" or "Yee-haw" or even "Yeery."

I, however, continue to hear "Laurel".

But I must know, what do you hear?
