Did Gover Say the F Word on Sesame Street?

People Think This Sesame Street Clip Is the Next Yanny vs. Laurel, and We Tend to Agree

May have just found next “Yanni or Laurel” soundbite thanks to my daughter’s obsession with Elmo. Listen once thinking Grover says “Yes, yes, that’s a f**king excellent idea” then again KNOWING he actually says “Yes, yes, that sounds like an excellent idea.” I hear either based on what I’m thinking from funny

First there was a blue and black or white and gold dress. Then came the great Yanny versus Laurel debate. Now, there's a another conundrum, centreing around Sesame Street dialogue of all things. A Reddit user pointed out that they heard two variations of a line spoken by Grover, and one includes a big fat F-bomb.

"May have just found next '[Yanny] or Laurel' soundbite thanks to my daughter's obsession with Elmo," read the caption. "Listen once thinking Grover says 'Yes, yes, that's a f*cking excellent idea' then again KNOWING he actually says 'Yes, yes, that sounds like an excellent idea.' I hear either based on what I'm thinking."

And trust me, it's a real thing. (You may have to visit Reddit to hear the audio.) The first time I watched the clip, I 100 percent heard the word f*cking. But when I went to listen again a few hours later, I couldn't hear it anymore.

What do you hear?
Yep, definitely heard "f*cking."
It's clearly "that sounds like an excellent idea," people!
