NFL Films has gotten in on the great Laurel vs. Yanny debate with a clever Twitter joke about its address.

If you’ve been off social media for the past 24 hours, Cloe Feldman started this viral phenomenon Monday by posting a video asking people to determine if they heard a robot voice saying Laurel or Yanny.

The debate has led to passionate defenses on both sides. CNN’s Amanda Jackson called in Brad Story, Professor of Speech, Language and Hearing at The University of Arizona, to determine why people are split on what they hear. 

“Part of it involves the recording,” Story said. “It’s not a very high quality. And that in itself allows there to be some ambiguity already.”

We may never know what the recording is actually saying, so NFL Films may have to start giving out two different addresses to avoid any confusion.
