  • Melinda Virosteck

    I know all-star, but didn't hear voices, just the melody.
    And I didn't hear the thud with the jumping cell tower either....
    Anyone with me? I also heard both lani and laurel, back and forth randomly, and definitely when looking at a certain word as its being played....
    Am I crazy? Yes, but not necessarily because of this...

    If you have mental and auditory capacity, and you play the speeding up rhythm long enough, you'll be able to catch the 'moment' the previous tone slows down disappear.

    Synesthesia is much more than just hearing and seeing things in tandem. Also if you’re going to credit every other video in this and not credit the original USclipr who discovered this phenomenon and posted it three years ago, who’s video you got that audio clip of smash mouth is from, than I will for you. usclip.net/video/ZY6h3pKqYI0/video.html there’s the original video the smash mouth clip is from
