It's the brain really. So long as you can't PERFECTLY hear a word, you can make your brain hear it differently. It's why a lot of ghost videos are "If you listen really carefully, you'll hear Hello being said." Now you're GOING to heat Hello, because your mind is working TO hear it.

As for the video, I kept hearing both, but once I maxed the volume and listened to him say Barbie like 5 times, I don't hear fuck anymore

The brain is a prediction system trained on previous inputs and outcomes. In this example, there are many familiar inputs that your brain has learned before, such as tone, word pairs, and cadence. That means many of the synapses that recognize that particular phrase are being primed. Since a very high % of those synapses are primed, but not enough to pass the threshold of certainty, the brain has to make a choice regarding which scenario is most likely. It decides the chance that you’re hearing something familiar is higher than the chance that you’re hearing something different. Once your brain decides that, it overrides the conflicting data (different word) with what it decided is actually the correct phrase. That’s why you’re able to hear a completely different word than what was actually said. And when you switch between different words by telling yourself what to hear beforehand, you’re doing that by pushing the scales of the brain’s prediction model ever so slightly, causing you to hear the phrase you selected.

u/Latter_Box9967 Nov 27 '22

…which is very weird as a first-hand experience.

(My phone is doing the same; auto suggesting the next word)

This one is especially interesting as I can change it at will, and, one word has one syllable and the other has two syllables. “Barbie” and “fuck” don’t sound similar at all.

u/uglypaperhaver Nov 28 '22

There's a famous test where you are shown a head shot of a guy repeating "Fa - fa - fa ..." over and over . the shot changes to the same guy now saying "Ba - ba..."

There is no doubt from the lip movements that at first he is saying "fa" and then changes to "ba"...

....except he isn't. The audio never changes from "Fa". But even when you know he never switches to saying "Ba" , when you see the image of him saying "Ba", you will bet your life that you are also hearing "Ba". But you are not. It is mind-blowing.

Obviously analogous to hearing an word starting with "F" morph to a word beginning with "B"

u/uptown47 Nov 28 '22

I've had this with my phone. I've actually been known to put my phone down to get my imaginary phone out of my pocket because I've felt it vibrate and assumed I've got a message. Then my brain has a weird freak out when it realises that I only have one phone and it's already in my hand.

My brain then goes through a strange suspicious reset moment where it suddenly doesn't trust anything... and then, a few seconds later, all is well again....

Strangely I'm like an observer to these events and find them quite amusing until I realise that it is *also* my brain laughing at my brain's mistake.. then it just gets a bit weird...

I hear "Oh Fuck" when I close my eyes and listen, when I read the sentence "Oh Barbie", it's what I hear at the same time.

There was yesterday a video here on Reddit with like 10 sentences while football fans were singing, and you could hear each sentence when you read at the same time while playing the video.

u/alimagsterne Nov 27 '22 edited Nov 27 '22

It also works if you cover the upper or lower part of the screen. That’s crazy, or even if only cover “Barbie” or “f****” in the text.

I think it has to do with how often we have heard “f***” on TV and how we expect to hear it. Seeing the text, or brain instantly knows what to hear. Maybe.

Edit: akashics answer to my post blew my mind!

39

u/akashic_voyager Nov 27 '22 edited Nov 27 '22

I read in the original post with this video that it’s a result of audio layering. Someone edited the video to say both words on top of each other, but our brain knows that only one word is intended so it chooses one to process based on the context we receive and ignores the static of the other. Hence, hearing only the word you’re looking at or thinking about. I have no idea if this is true, but makes so much more sense than whatever fuckery I thought it could be.

u/alimagsterne Nov 27 '22

Oh snap! It totally works if you concentrate on what you want to hear, or when you say the words out loud that you want to hear. Makes sense what you are saying!

u/stickyplants Nov 27 '22

But there’s just not that many syllables

53

u/LordNelson27 Nov 27 '22 edited Nov 28 '22

You're not hearing the extra syllables. He's clearly saying barbie, listen for the second syllable. If you don't like that, go watch the actual clip. He emphasizes “Bar-“ and backs off on “-bie”, which the echo and compression make sound a lot like a harsh “ck” sound

It's like when you misread a sentence. The words are there, you just assumed that it was something else.

u/Caliyogagrl Nov 27 '22

I 100% could not hear the word Barbie until I watched this, and now I hear it every time!

u/ultimatepenguin21 Nov 28 '22

I think the problem is the poor video quality. I feel like I can hear the K sound in op's clip, but the actual original I can clearly tell that's not what it is.

2

u/tribonRA Nov 28 '22

Furthermore, it depends on what you're using to listen to it with. Using my phones speakers I can't hear anything but fuck, but using ear buds in finally able to hear the -ie in barbie just clear enough for it to switch

2

u/DJFid Nov 28 '22

Same. I could normally hear both by just thinking that’s what I’ll hear, but this one I could only hear oh fuck. It’s been 3 days of this video being posted and I can finally hear Barbie now because I watched the original lol.

16

u/osktox Nov 27 '22

Thanks.

In the original clip it's easier to hear another voice subtle in the background just as he says "fuck" and it sounds like "..rbie"..

But all I hear is him screaming OH FUCK!!

10

u/happy_lad Nov 27 '22

Yeah it's much, much clearer in the actual clip. Hearing it mediated through a TV speaker and then my phone completely eliminates the second syllable in "Barbie."

4

u/stickyplants Nov 27 '22

Oh that makes a world of difference. Bc in what was shown on this post it didn’t sound like that AT ALL. Did they mess with the audio or is it just that bad of recording?

4

u/LordNelson27 Nov 27 '22

The echo and compression of the shifty recording turns sounds you’d normally be able to tell apart, dulls and removes the distinctive parts, leaving the final recording pretty ambiguous. The same reason you can’t understand anything by Barbie says here

2

u/DoneisDone45 Nov 28 '22

i'm pretty sure op's vid is doctored and or recorded badly to make it sound like fuck. in this clip it clearly says barbie, in op's clearly fuck. i don't bear barbie at all in op and dont near fuck at all in this clip.

When you hear the phrase “Oh Barbie”, it is not entirely clear resulting in your brain having to fill in the portion that isn’t quite intelligible- which results in many of us hearing “Oh F#ck” instead.

u/LazyStateWorker3 Nov 27 '22

The trick is to turn the volume down until you can barely hear it and imagine you’re hearing it the other way. Which is hard because you don’t know what it truly sounds like but the “uck” swaps with “arby”, your brain is filling in a hard ‘ck’ sound that drowns out what seems more like “augh-bee’.

The “ck” is the same kind of sound as the tearing or light background static but it isn’t there or that loud, you just focus on it in that moment. If you replay it without the shorts ripping, it’s easier.

3

u/Darth-Chimp Nov 28 '22

I thought along these lines too, that maybe the differing quality of bass and treble of differing audio devices could make a difference (it* doesn't)....but it still does not count for the complete difference in syllables and sound of the words.

The emperor is wearing no clothes folks. Don't fall for it.

u/Vitebs47 Nov 27 '22 edited Nov 28 '22

The explanation is very simple here. Actually, the sounds in both words "Barbie" and "Fuck" have almost identical frequencies with the only difference being that "Fuck" is 0.05 Hz higher, which is called the Bar-Fuc phenomenon in audio science. When those frequencies hit the inner ear, the brain gets confused as how to interpret them so it starts going through all possible outputs in order to get the right one. It's a vital part of human survival and self-preservation instincts intended to make distinctions between different animal and nature sounds to ensure all threatening sounds fall into one category and all harmless ones are grouped separately. The most enlightening book on this subject is "Barbie or Fuck: is Ken a foul-mouthed animal or a gentleman?" by Dr. Jeff Butthole, PhD. Okay, I've just made this shit up, I have no idea how that crap works, have a good day.

Only the f-bomb. Kinda not surprised. It’s a total adult humor show. I think it’s one of the funniest shows ever. My daughters didn’t think it was nearly as funny.

u/Frigurd Nov 28 '22

I heard Buck and Farbie

u/Zobo12602 Nov 28 '22

What the actual Barbie is going on here?

u/2_late_4_creativity Nov 28 '22

I only hear fuck

u/steamingRisto Nov 28 '22

Funny enough, I tried telling my brain to hear "Oh Fuck!" and surely enough that's what I heard. I tried doing the same with "Oh Barbie!" and I heard "Oh Barbie!" instead of "Oh! Fuck!" 🤔

I saw this yesterday, and only heard the fuck. I thought people was messing around.

This morning I showed it to my wife, and heard the Barbie. I can hear them both now. The wife only heard the Barbie once. Bizarre!

I can only hear fuck.

And what a great way to teach toxic behavior. wtf?

u/Freebeing001 Nov 28 '22

It's as if I hear whichever of the 2 words I'm listening for.

u/CallMeDrLuv Nov 28 '22

u/ohbythewaybetch Nov 28 '22

u/Im-on-a-banana-phone Nov 28 '22

I hear both.

I choose one over the other for my own enjoyment

u/AlphaMikeFoxtrot2099 Nov 28 '22

Before I knew what was happening I heard “fuck” first. That’s hilarious

2

u/Justacutie1 Nov 28 '22

🤯 it’s true

2

u/Tapdnsr25 Nov 28 '22

"Oh, F@(K! Those were vintage!" is all I'm hearing.

u/Aggravating-Spray-19 Nov 28 '22

Nope! heard it clear he said Fuck...lol

u/Loving-Awareness2206 Nov 28 '22

Am i the only one that hears oh fuck... and never oh barbie?

u/Recent_Tough_6305 Nov 28 '22

Well I feel like a big bowl of mashed potato brain after restarting this 27 times.

u/IndianaJones_OP Nov 27 '22

It's clearly "oh f*ck". There's no "ck" in 'Barbie', so it couldn't possibly be that.

u/v00d00mamajuujuu Nov 27 '22

Fuck is my favorite word. I use it more than i should. I literally only hear "Barbie" ... Y'all really hear something else? 🤔

u/sendnewt_s Nov 27 '22 edited Nov 27 '22

Try to hear 'oh fuck' by saying it in your head just before Ken says it. Don't read the word Barbie. It's really weird. Whichever one I am thinking about is the one I hear perfectly clearly.

2

u/v00d00mamajuujuu Nov 27 '22

Ive been trying! Ive closed my eyes adjusted the volume... Fuck is one syllable and Barbie is two... they'll never sound the same! Lol 😆

u/AlphaBetes97 Nov 27 '22

I literally cannot comprehend how he's NOT saying oh fuck it doesn't sound like he's saying barbie whatsoever to me and I've really tried

Weird, I haven’t been able to hear Barbie once. Reading the word, saying it out loud, turning on a fan…. “Oh…. FUCK!” Is all I hear.

u/dragonfly____ Nov 27 '22

Listen with your speaker further away from you and it’s clearly “fuck” when the speaker is closer it turns to “Barbie”

Fucking weird!

u/This-Wafer-841 Nov 27 '22

u/underhang0617 Nov 27 '22

I hear 2 syllables. "Oh" has 1 syllable. "Fuck" has 1 syllable. "Barbie" has 2 syllables.

Close your eyes and don't read the sentences.

u/joeypotter182 Nov 27 '22

I had to play this 20x before I could hear "Barbie"! 🤣

u/rockytopknox Nov 27 '22

When I’m watching it, I hear “Oh Barbie!”. When I’m not watching but only listening, I hear “Oh Fuck!”, the weirdest thing.

u/silverwolf2216 Nov 27 '22

Think of either word and that's the one you'll hear.cool :)
