This fun video explains how our mind can misinterpret what we hear. Featured are several cool examples of how what you see while listening can influence your interpretation of what you are hearing.

From Wikipedia, "An auditory illusion is an illusion of hearing, the aural equivalent of an optical illusion: the listener hears either sounds which are not present in the stimulus, or "impossible" sounds.[1] In short, auditory illusions highlight areas where the human ear and brain, as organic survival tools, differ from perfect audio receptors (for better or for worse)." Interested in more types of auditory illusions? There are over a dozen auditory illusions are listed in the Wikipedia page.
