Have you ever felt a euphoric, tingly response to soft voices or quiet noises? It could be a light tingling in your extremities or a shiver from your head down your spine, a little something called Autonomous Sensory Meridian Response, or ASMR.
This strange sensation has sparked a trend on YouTube, and now really long videos of people flipping through magazines or folding towels are getting millions of views. Sounds weird, right?
But it seems like there's something to this strange phenomenon. At least, the numbers on the YouTube channels don't lie. Over 7 million views and counting on a video of a woman whispering, tapping her nails on a wooden hairbrush, and blowing smoke into a microphone.
Now, some of you may think that's pretty weird. And I'll admit, I was pretty skeptical too. But you have to watch the video before you judge.
