I'm thinking this is something I've heard a lot and generally it makes my wife ask me to turn the volume down on the movie! This is implemented
by overlaid sound tracks that are an octave or more apart and it seems to be getting louder all the time when it really isn't! The video explains it
better than I can:

Wait! Are you saying your Wife is using "Shepard Tones" to make sure you hear what she's telling you to do?! I just seriously suggest you pay more attention to "SWMBO"! Immediately! For your own safety! yes.gif scram.gif

My dear wife Tama has various and sundry talents and abilities; some might call them superpowers!
