>зародившаяся на реддите
В этой статье дальше историю происхождения раскопали:
"But Yanny and Laurel didn't actually start on Reddit. Like any good meme, it started with teens.
On May 11, Katie Hetzel, a freshman at Flowery Branch High School in Georgia, was studying for her world literature class, where "laurel" was one of her vocabulary words. She looked it up on Vocabulary.com and played the audio. Instead of the word in front of her, she heard "yanny."
"I asked my friends in my class and we all heard mixed things," says Hetzel. She then posted the audio clip to her Instagram story. Soon, a senior at the same school, Fernando Castro, re-published the clip to his Instagram story as a poll. "She recorded it and put it on her story then I remade the video and posted it," says Castro. "Katie and I have been going back and forth and we both agree that we had equal credit on it."
Reddit user RolandCamry, a friend of Castro's, says he then took the video from Castro's Instagram and posted it to r/blackmagicfuckery. "I originally saw it on an Instagram story," says RolandCamry. "From there I put it on Reddit."
That explains how Laurel and Yanny went viral. But where did the audio clip actually come from? While many have speculated that it was computer-generated, the reading was actually recorded by an opera singer in New York in December of 2007."https://www.wired.com/story/yanny-and-laurel-true-history/
