WEIRD: Why Can People Hear This Gif?

We all know gifs are silent short animations, So why a a bunch of people hearing sound on a viral one?

In the gif created by Twitter user Happy Toast, three power line towers are play jump rope. Some people can actually hear the thud of the one jumping rope ans scientists want to know why. So…they are recruiting subjects on social media.

Dr Lisa Debruine, a researcher at the University of Glasgow, included a poll to her post about the gif to see how many people could hear the gif. So far, 75 percent have said that they could hear a thudding noise. Even crazier, 4-percent said they hear “something else.”
