Whispering videos on YouTube
« on: February 03, 2019, 10:56:04 AM »

What's with all the whispering videos on YouTube these days?

The whispering is usually accompanied by activities such as reciting the alphabet, crumpling paper, performing a mock medical exam, and (you guessed it) chewing bubble gum.

Something with sensory deprivation or similar to that is the apparent point.

People are watching, so it must serve some sort of purpose.

and now we can add pouring a beer after tapping the bottle with your fingernails, while sitting at a table in the middle of a lush tropical island in front of a national TV audience

I hadn't even heard of this trend until I read this thread, which prepared me for the ad.  I don't drink beer.

People just make weird videos. There is a youtuber that just sits and smiles in his videos.

 :-D :-D When an Internet thing gets referenced on a show like NCIS, that's when I know it's ancient.

I think that ASMR is real and that it has had an effect on me, but I donít get it from anything that was created for the purposes of being ASMR.

I think you just need to turn the volume up.

The Zoe Kravitz commercial did nothing for me, and I am absolutely addicted to ASMR.

ASMR is weird. You either feel it, and love it, or don't feel it and think it's the strangest thing ever. No middle-ground whatsoever.

Of course you find it "mind boggling". If you don't experience it, you wouldn't understand it (that being, to quote Champ Kind, a "scientific fact"). To quote myself,

You either feel [ASMR], and love it, or don't feel it and think it's the strangest thing ever. No middle-ground whatsoever.

The catch with ASMR is that, usually, it's not the content of the videos that are interesting. It's the individual triggers in the videos. For Bob Ross, it's the brush strokes, the soft talking, the texture of the canvas, the banging of the brush (which is loud but somehow still "tingly"). No one cares about what Bob is painting. It's the process that's enjoyable. For the medical exam videos, no one's watching it to understand the process, and the ins-and-outs. They're watching solely because of the noises, the hand movements (visual ASMR is a thing), etc.

If you're actually interested in ASMR, you have to watch the videos and not actively try to tell yourself that it's weird. That will overpower any chance of enjoyment.
