    This Recording Either Says "Brainstorm" Or "Green Needle" Depending On Which You're Thinking About And It's Freaky AF

    What is anything anymore?

    Okay, guys. The Great Yanny-or-Laurel Debate of 2018 must officially be laid to rest, because a NEW recording is going viral on Twitter and it is STRESSING ME THE HECK OUT.

    Bravo

    Please just listen to the recording below, in which a man's voice is either saying "brainstorm" or "green needle." But this time there's a TWIST: The word you hear CHANGES based on which one you're thinking about.

    Think the Laurel or Yanny thing is weird? You can hear the words ‘Brainstorm’ or ‘Green Needle’ based on which word you think about. Try it. https://t.co/7TrS9XNhNR

    It's just like that yanny/laurel mess, but with the added ability to change what you hear, whenever you want. YOU CAN ALTER YOUR REALITY WITH THE POWER OF YOUR MIND!!!

    Okay, let's try this out. Play the recording below, and think of the phrase "green needle" in your head. You're gonna hear a voice say "green needle."

    You can hear "Brainstorm" or "Green Needle" based on whichever one you think about. Pure black magic. We're well past 'Yanny' and 'Laurel'! https://t.co/mgtss1lrtO

    Now play the EXACT SAME RECORDING, while thinking of the word "brainstorm." What do you hear???

    You can hear "Brainstorm" or "Green Needle" based on whichever one you think about. Pure black magic. We're well past 'Yanny' and 'Laurel'! https://t.co/mgtss1lrtO

    And just for fun, go ahead and listen to it a THIRD TIME, and think of whichever phrase you damn well please!!! I promise you're gonna hear it.

    The clip was originally recorded as part of a toy review on YouTube by DosmRider. (For the record, the toy is *supposed* to be saying "Brainstorm.") On Twitter, the video's creator expressed his own confusion about the whole phenomenon.

    Thank to everyone that pointed out to me that my Ultimate Omnitrix video was used for that Brainstorm or Green Needle video. https://t.co/gFKJ4MlZZT

    Here's me sitting at my desk, listening to this recording on repeat forever:

    Brainstorm! Green needle! Brainstorm! Green needle! I can't stop doing it.

    WHAT IS ANYTHING ANYMORE????
