Brainstorm or Green Needle – You Will Only Hear the Word You Are Reading in This Viral Video and It Is Freaking People Out

Brainstorm or Green Needle – You Will Only Hear the Word You Are Reading in This Viral Video and It Is Freaking People Out

Remember the Yanny/Laurel clip where different people can hear two entirely different words at the same time? The audio illusion went viral back in 2018 as it blew everyone’s minds how we could hear something completely different from our friend standing right next to us. Well, now there is a whole new audio illusion that is blowing minds all over the internet. Depending on which word you are reading at the time, the audio will either say “brainstorm” or “green needle”.

Crazy, huh? You couldn’t get two words that sound more different but it’s true – you can actually hear whichever word you are reading as the video loops.

Watch this clip and see how insane it is:

@emilysophie.mWatch it twice and try both words 🙌 ##mindblown ##greenneedle ##brainstorm ##greenneedleorbrainstorm♬ Shoutout to the dead creators using this for likes – redlobsterz

How utterly mystifying! What is this fuckery??

Once the TikTok clip reached Twitter, people had some things to say about it. As they do.

 

And here is what the McGurk effect entails:

‘The McGurk effect is a perceptual phenomenon that demonstrates an interaction between hearing and vision in speech perception. The illusion occurs when the auditory component of one sound is paired with the visual component of another sound, leading to the perception of a third sound. The visual information a person gets from seeing a person speak changes the way they hear the sound.’

So there you go! Illusions are fun!
