    The New Yanny/Laurel: Is Grover Dropping The F-Bomb In This Video?

    It's Yanny/Laurel all over again!

    Hey, remember that Yanny/Laurel thing? Can you believe that happened in 2018? It's been a long year.

    Anyway, it's happening again. There's a clip of Grover from Sesame Street going around, and people swear that he's dropping the F-bomb in it.

    I know there’s lots of serious news out there, but Grover is dropping f-bombs on Sesame Street. I feel this is newsworthy and symptomatic of the current state of the nation. #sesamestreet #groverfbomb

    It seems to have first been posted in November by @clarkiephoto on Twitter, but recently went viral on Reddit after it was shared on r/funny by Redditor Schrodert.

    The crazy thing is, like Laurel/Yanny, you can hear different things based on what you decide it's going to be. Read this sentence and then listen for it in the clip: "Yes, yes, that's a f**king excellent idea."

    Now listen again and think of this sentence: "Yes, yes, that sounds like an excellent idea."

    Crazy, right?? Your brain can basically decide if Grover is swearing or not. Grover has no free will, and you are his god. Scary.


    What a lovable, furry old foulmouth.
