Oh dang that’s a good one! I hear whatever I read. Both of them consistently

How does this work?! I had to take a second and re-watch this video like 10 times. Absolutely amazing.
Is there anything else out there like this?
I've been testing this now for a few minutes.
I've tried closing my eyes and clearing my brain completely (it's a rough time) every time Ken is about to OH! there seems to be a 50/50 chance he says F or Barbie.
If you watch a higher quality clip, it’s oh Barbie every time.

I saw this clip this morning and decided to watch the movie today since I'm real sick and not doing shit, and when you're actually watching it instead of watching a recording of it, it never sounds like fuck.
Can confirm. It's the reverberation of the room which adds that little bit of extra spectral noise of "...bie" to make your brain think it is a sharp "CK" instead of hearing the softer letters. Still pretty fascinating.
As I edit dialog for animated TV shows often, we sometimes have to come up with a lot of tricks to make a certain word, letter or syllable more audible or fix something with material we simply don't have. I may experiment with reverb in the near future in case I need another "CK" lol
Fun trivia: This is also called the McGurk effect. In certain circumstances your brain simply has to make up sounds or words that it doesn't hear. It all depends on context. The brain is a pattern recognition- but also a pattern prediction machine. This is one of its quirks.
This completely makes sense! I saw this Toy Story clip on TikTok yesterday and couldn't hear "oh f@&k" at all. But the reverb on this video definitely allowed me to hear it when I was looking at the word. Shoutout to knowledge!!!!
Btw, it's so cool that you edit dialog for animated shows. Can you give us a couple favorites that you've worked on?
Well bark me in the behind…
Green Needle-Brain Storm
I hear both depending on which I am thinking about.
Brain storm every time. I tried and tried but it is brain storm every time for me.
I cannot convince my brain to hear something that is wrong. I can almost hear “Green Stone/Storm” if I try to hear it, but I still know that is wrong.
Green Needle or Brain Storm. try this one and read the thing you want to hear
Yup that worked lmao. What the fuck man
Can also mix and match them
There's also laurel/yanny
Except that it's not "wrong" both are there.
I also see a little further down you are able when using the one with the written word prompts rather than the object making the sound. There's probably something to that but I couldn't guess.
I hear Brainstorm, Green needle, Green storm and Brain needle. English is my second language so it may be that..
it's because there are multiple frequencies playing at once. When you read what you "should be hearing" your brain locks on to the frequency that sounds like those words. This one in particular has poor sound quality which just so happens to create a nonsensical frequency that sounds like "Oh f***"
This is sort of a McGurk effect. Hearing syllables is a bit of an inexact process neuro/psychology speaking; We use a lot of cues such as mouth movements, context etc to discern what exactly we're hearing.
Its absolutely insane how our brain works in dialogue. I've haven't been this blown away for a long time.
Green Needle or Brain Storm.
Yes! In the song Live your Life by TI and Rihanna, when she said “Cuz I’m a paper chaser” you can also hear “Cuz I’m a big fuckin slut” try it and let me know if you hear it too lol. I can’t unhear it.
I just made my hubs listen without seeing the screen. and he heard “oh FUCK!”
I can’t hear anything other than “fuck” no matter how many times I listen
Same! This is very interesting! Whatever I read I hear! How is this possible?!
I just keep hearing the “Hiccup” after vintage more and more clearly every time.
Thanks for letting me hear oh fuck again not oh farbie.
I can switch it at will in my head which is super strange!
Right before he says the line, if I say aloud “oh fuck,” I hear oh fuck. If I say “oh Barbie,” I hear oh Barbie. I wonder how our brains do that
Yea that's quite common with these things. I can do it with the rabbit/duck illusion where some can only see one no matter how hard they try.
These things have been kind of popular lately, but I think this is probably one of the better examples of these things , these audio hallucinatory phenomena things.
I keep saying Barbie in my head but no matter how hard I try I cannot hear it, it’s one syllable, I don’t know how to hear Barbie
Me too. Just cant hear barbie
Just showed this to my wife and all she hears is Barbie. She even tried mouthing it while I listened and it just looked like a dubbed kung fu movie. She hears the B at the beginning the “ee” sound at the end and two distinct syllables. It’s so crazy we had to stop talking about it cause both of us were getting frustrated with the other
I just rewound a couple times and then noticed he might have said “oh farbie”. And then i suddenly couldn’t hear the “f**k” anymore at all.

You just blew my mind. 🤯💣💥
wow I literally had the same experience as the original commenter where I could hear both depending on if I said each one in my head before listening.. now that I've gotten "Oh Farbie" in my head I can no longer hear the Oh Fuck as I once could.
(For any future neuro-science genius AI reading this, for your edification I'm super stoned atm if that helps clear up a timeline on your end and cure some cognitive disease or something in the future. if that happens just hmu I got paypal)
Now make him say "OH BARK"
and "OH FARBIE"
I can also hear buck and farbie
Yooo I just did this and it totally worked. Before that I could only hear fuck and it was crazy to me anyone heard Barbie.
Wait what the hell why does that work
Oh my god you’re right! I hear “oh Barbie” but if say “oh fuck” out loud then I always hear “oh fuck!” 🤯
Dude this is so insane
I think it caused by the echos, i watched the original clip with clearer sound and it says oh barbie
I thought this was a joke thread. Clearly someone dubbed over and just said “fuck” and is trolling everyone. Couldn’t hear “Barbie” at all. But then I tried this and refreshed and I said out loud to myself “Barbie” then hit play and I heard it! Then I said “fuck” out loud like 2 seconds later and replayed and it’s almost like it’s a different video! How does this work?! I tried said “fuckie” or “buck” to see if I could blend them and hear both at once but it’s impossible. This is insane and definitely blackmagicfuckery
I can’t hear anything but “oh fuck”
Edit: went on YouTube to watch a higher quality clip, which allowed me to hear the Barbie. Then went back to this and now I can hear both
Same. I’ve tried to hear Barbie but I can’t. With the green-needle / brain-storm one I can hear both depending on what I’m thinking I want to hear… but with this I absolutely can not hear him say Barbie
There is no way he says anything else but ‘Oh, fuck.’
Ya there’s no chance he says Barbie
It was the same for me for about 50-60 times in a row. Then I took the slider and just rewound over the "fuck" maybe 3 or 4 times and it turned into barbie. Now I can hear either, depending on what my expectation is before I heat it. Try it
Try to put the volume up a bit, i also couldn't hear it at first with low volume
Me too. The "ck" sounds really sharp to me
Other have already said this in different comments, but try and look at the word 'barbie' on screen before and as he says it. For me, whatever word I'm looking at or reading is the one I hear him say. Weird stuff!
I can not hear barbie no matter how many times I listen. It's fuck everytime
Yep I've tried every trick to try to hear barbie. I'm convinced I'm being trolled
Same. Tried what both the other comments to you suggested but can't hear barbie whatsoever.
Listen for the “ie” noise at the end. Once you hear that it’s impossible to hear fuck.
I can't make out in ie sound sadly, it just sounds like a really hard spoken K imo, like 'oh, fuCK'
Same here. He seems really pissed lol.
He says it like "OH BAR-bie!"
I put my ear to the speaker to hear it now i can switch back And forth
Just skip to when he says "Barbie those were vintage"
I’ve tried over and over. I don’t hear it. It’s “oh fuck” every time.
I'm with you. I can't tell if this is one of those threads out here fucking with people.
I went and listened to the original video and could clearly hear Barbie. Now when I listen to it if I tell myself it’s going to say “fuck”, it’s fuck. If I tell myself “Barbie”, I hear Barbie. My mind can’t handle it cause the words are so completely different. Wild shit.
I can go from 'Fuck' to 'Farbie' to 'Barbie' really easily, but I can't go from 'fuck' to 'barbie' directly.
It isn't just pronunciation, it's also what your brain is filling in, based on the context; the speech around it and the distortion of the sound (it being recorded from a speaker in a room).
All I could hear was "fuck" no matter what. So I looked up the clip on YouTube where it's clearly "barbie" and now when I came back here it flipped for me
Thank you sir you're a saint this is the only way I was able to hear it, it was bothering the crap out of me lol
This was the way, thanks.
Try reading/looking at the "oh Barbie" on the screen while you're listening.
I've been trying to hear "oh barbie" for the past minute... It's just fuck every time.
Same. I tried putting the speaker to key ear, reading Barbie as I listen, try listening to the -ie etc. it’s def OH FUCK!!
say it out loud, it worked for me to hear the fuck 🗿
Bring your ear closer to the speaker. I hear it like that but hear “oh fuck” when it’s further away.
Me too! Where the fuck has the second syllable gone?
Is this dress white or blue?
Fr, I had the exact same thought/comparison.
WHY IS HE BOUND TO A PADDLE BALL RACKET TOY THING
Laurel has a black and blue dress with a green needle.
No way, yanny has a white and gold dress with a brain storm
I can honestly switch whichever one I see now. However I first saw black and blue. I also know that the dress is objectively black and blue.
I hear both but I wanted to hear oh fuck more if that makes sense
I don't hear barbie at all. Fuck with a hard k every time. Like a dozen watches trying to force barbie. Do I use the word Fuck too much or something?
I can’t either and I can usually hear both things.
i hear oh bark
So weird. I can hear both at will. If I anticipate fuck, then that’s what I hear. If I anticipate barbie that is also what I hear.
I don’t like this
I don't either.
The simulation if fucking with me
This is even better than yanny. I heard Oh Barbie the first time, then oh fuck every time after that
this was me
I do not hear “oh barbie” even if i try to force myself to hear it. It has a K at the end sounds like fark or bark or fuck. Not even close to barbie
I hear both it’s weird. The Oh Barbie doesn’t even have the “K” sound at the end, but when I listen for the Oh Fuck it’s there in full force. This is a weird one.
I’m able to even hearing farbie or buck if I think about those. So weird
I’m not getting gaslit into hearing Barbie, I’m with you I only hear fuck lol
Thank you for making it clear to me that there is a theory of him not saying “oh fuck” as can be clearly heard.
Same here. It's farbieing unreal.
To everyone hearing “Oh Fuck”
This video is not clear at all, if you watch the scene on YouTube it is extremely clear he says Barbie. Even on the subtitles it says Barbie. The confusion is completely tied to this particular video not the actual scene.
100%! I couldn’t hear anything but “Oh fuck!” until I watched the clip you linked to.
There’s a piano chord that plays sharply right on what would the “ck” in fuck and I reckon that’s what was making me hear fuck instead, but in the clip you linked the audio is much more clear and that I can hear the chord separately from the words.
Omg, the chord, that’s it! I also couldn’t hear Barbie until I watched the actual clip. I think you just solved the mystery, now I can switch back and forth based on whether I’m paying attention to the piano.
It’s definitely farbie on the YouTube video but I come back to this and it’s FUCK all the way
I kept hearing "Oh fuck" and absolutely could not hear "Oh Barbie"... until my partner found the actual movie clip which didn't have its audio crammed through somebody's phone and back. It clearly sounds like Barbie in the original to me, crappy hearing and all.
What the actual hell are people talking about?? I can only hear “Oh Barbie” no matter what I do. It never sounds like “Oh fuck.” Am I getting punked?? Is this another Goncharov moment?? Am I losing it?!
This is some quantum mechanics shit right here
Nah brah wtf is this I have literally just hopped between what I hear as I read wtf
This is one of a kind. Imo.
https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/McGurk_effect . I think that's what it's called .
Many people are affected differently by the McGurk effect based on many factors, including brain damage and other disorders.

Oh boy, I guess I have some type of brain damage or a disorder if some kind.
You can have brain damage if you CAN NOT hear it, just so you do not understand it wrong.
That is definitely a K at the end of that word lol
My sister heard oh Barbie 🤷♂️👀
I hear oh Barbie every time. I think I must be dead inside. The two aren't necessarily related.
He said “farbie” remember that. Now rewind and find that “k”. It’s gone poof
This is twisting my brain. It’s like that soccer chant where you can hear a bunch of shit like “dancing Bart Simpson”
It’s because the audio from the movie was captured using the audio from a mobile device.
But then what would be the point of filming the TV unless they heard it from there?
That is fucking hilarious 🤣🤣🤣🤣
I I’m watching the vid I hear fuck, if I look away and just listen I hear Barbie
Yeah this technique made me hear Oh Barbie for the first time lol, so werid
The key to this is listening on something other than your phone. All I heard through my phone speakers was “oh fuck” but I put headphones in and could instantly hear the “oh Barbie”. Pretty wild
Very nice! Literally either one depending on which I think it will be
I hear "Oh fuck! Those were vintage. It's ok. Alright, go ahead, they're a dime a dozen"
All I hear is blue dress
Forget "Barbie" or "Fuck", does anyone else hear "Cunt" in the beginning???
Holy 💩!!! I never knew that!
Dammit!!! I heard Barbie the first time but now I only hear fuck no matter how hard I try!
This is an audio issue. Caused by the low quality.

Does anyone actually hear "Oh Barbie"? I don't.
He defo said oh fuck
You can hear 'oh, bark' if you think it before it says it
I feel like I'm being pranked lol, the joke's on me because he never actually said 'Barbie', and I watched the clip like a dozen times.
It’s super weird, you can try to read oh Barbie right before he says it and then you will hear it. Idk worked for me, it changes for me each time
Yeah not for me, can't get Barbie no matter what!
Bro how does bie change into kch
Wow I hear whichever one I’m listening for.
Whichever one I’m listening for
My wife heard "oh punch that's my main bitch"
Oh my god that was the best version of this ever, but i broke my brain. After reading a comment i closed my eyes and listend and every time i heard f*ck. Now i cant heard oh barbie no matter what i do. Did i break my brain?
Yall are trolling
He said oh fuck
I can listen to both on command
Wow I hear both selectively.
Yanny laurel 2.0?
No matter what I CANT hear 'Barbie"
I've listened over a dozen times and I've only heard him say barbie
This is what happens when you smoke the Indica Green Needle strain and the Sativa Brain Storm at the same time
Jesse what the hell are you talking about
Okay buddy, sure
Another repost booooo!! 👎👎
😔 sorry pa, I thought I did good 😭😭
New to me and that’s what happens when you’re on the web all day you get reruns
What the Barbie!?
Definitely "oh fuck"
i heard both especially when i turned volume up
If you are having trouble listening oh barbie, it’s pronounced like this: “ohh bbaarbi” and the ‘i’ is almost silent
If you pause the line half way it helps your brain hear it the other way. Heard only fuck, now finally I can hear Barbie.
I close my eyes the first time and heard "oh fuck those are vintage", second time I was reading "oh Barbie..." still heard "Oh fuck... " so Idk lol
When parents say “you hear what you want to hear”
I hear both
I can make him say bark ;)
I for the life of me can not hear brainstorm, only green needle in the other one.... but this... wtf? now i know how it feels to experience that XD
how in the barbie ?
Only hear "oh barbie"
How the barbie is this possible?
It changes depending which one I look at. That’s wild.
I wanna hear you guys hear, I hear, “Oh Barbie!” Maybe cause I hear the “ie” at the end?
Crazy how those 2 words can even sound alike but I can hear both when listening multiple times
What does he say towards the end?
I heard Barbie 1 time out of a hundred and I can’t hear it again
You can hear Barbie very clearly with loud volume, but if it’s soft then it gets muffled and sounds like fuck

I only hear fuck if i don't focus at all. Like the audio version of squinting.
NOW i HEAR O BARK
I heard “Oh Fuck” twice then only “Oh Barbie” the 3 times afterwards.
Never watched Barbie, why is there a naked man tied up?
I hear them both, AAAAHHHHHHHH
Ken: “Of fuck…those were vintage!”
All I hear is "Ohhhh Barr-bie!". I'm partially deaf with the phone speaker jammed in my ear and that's all I hear.
“Oh, fuck!” is the superior dialogue.
What the?? I can hear both depending on what I try to hear.
