A new video surfaced Wednesday showing a clear creature which lights up and speaks, but what does it say?

"Sarah it's been reported that you hear Laurel, how do you respond?" an off-camera voice asks Sanders.

And President Donald Trump ends the lighthearted video claiming "I hear covfefe".

In a video posted to Twitter, the White House staff revealed whether they were hearing "Laurel" or "Yanny".

'Yanny's the victor, Laurel's the loser, ' she confidently declares. If you hadn't been introduced to the possibility of hearing "Yanny" or "Laurel" you may not have heard either of these words.

"I hear covfeve", Trump says from his desk in the Oval Office, referencing the infamous typo published on his Twitter account a year ago.

All your favorite Trumpers are there-Ivanka, Sarah Huckabee Sanders, Kellyanne Conway, Mike Pence and even the president himself.

There are actual reasons why an individual might hear either word. The disputed mystery audio clip that sounds like different things to different people, Yanny or Laurel has divided the Internet.

The audio very clearly said "yanny".

Researchers say those who hear higher frequency sounds are the ones who hear "yanny".

"Clearly you are getting your information from CNN because that's fake news". In a recent Twitter poll, 47% of people heard Yanny while 53% heard Laurel.
