In a cheeky clip posted on Twitter, White House staff argued over Yanny and Laurel.

Laurel and Yanny debate was an audio version of "The Dress" - a photo that went viral in 2015 when no one could agree whether the garment was white and gold or blue and black. "All I hear is Yanny", Sanders replies.

But there are also plenty of White House staffs who only hear Yanny, including strategic-communications director Mercedes Schlapp.

'Sarah it's been reported that you hear Laurel, how do you respond?' the man behind the camera asks Sanders in the video.

So if you're hearing Laurel, you're likely picking up on the lower frequency.

Senior aide and first daughter Ivanka Trump, White House counselor Kellyanne Conway and White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders were among those taking part in the video.

President Trump, along with other members of his administration, jumped in on the "Yanny vs. Laurel" debate on Thursday.

"If there was stuff going on at high frequency range maybe you would get young people hearing/and being influenced by that, but not oldies?"

What do you hear?! Much like anything on the internet, disagreements over what is being said in the clip broke out nearly immediately.

Conway joked that while the sound she heard was "laurel", she could "deflect and divert to yanny" if needed.
