What does E-Y-E-S spell? Since you’re reading this, it’s not very hard to see the answer. However, for thousands of people being filmed and put on YouTube, they can’t quite seem to figure out what those four letters spell out when they hear it.
Heather Partin, from Williamsburg, Kentucky, came across the “E-Y-E-S trick” and decided to try it on her husband. The result has the internet in tears of laughter.
Heather found the video on YouTube and thought it was hilarious. She knew she had to try it out on her husband. If you’re not familiar with the “trick,” here are the basics.
First, make sure the camera is rolling.
Second, ask the person what Y-E-S spells. They will most likely respond with a natural “YES.”
Next, ask them what E-Y-E-S spells. At this point, mass confusion and hilarity should ensue.
For some reason, when people are asked what E-Y-E-S spells after being asked what Y-E-S spells, their brain goes haywire, and they can’t figure it out.
Heather films as she focuses the camera on her husband, Chris. She starts the riddle by asking him what Y-E-S spells and, of course, he answers correctly. So far, he’s not impressed by the complexity of the supposed brain teaser.
Next, she goes on to ask him what E-Y-E-S spells. Chris pauses to think for a moment and has the most hilarious response Heather could have imagined. These types of responses are what have millions of people in stitches across the internet.
Chris responds to the spelling stumper with “E-YES.” You can hear his wife burst out into laughter, not expecting her husband to fall for such a silly and simple trick.
Heather continues to ask her husband the same questions, in the same order, and once again, Chris is confident that his “e-yes” response is absolutely the correct answer. It would only make sense after all. If Y-E-S spells “yes,” then E-Y-E-S must be “yes” with a long “e” in front of it. E-YES.
Heather repeats the riddle a few more times, and each time, Chris can’t understand how the answer could possibly be anything else. His brain is unable to picture the word in his head because the word “yes” is at the forefront.
At one point, Chris asks his wife if “e-yes” is a Spanish word. Heather completely loses it at that point. Her husband is still stumped.
Although we don’t see the end of the video, Heather told people on Facebook that he finally figured it out once she was able to write it down for him. Same goes for most of the people who have had their confusion filmed and posted on social media.
The hilarious video below was originally shared on Facebook and has since been viewed over 4.5 million times.
