The Michael Rock Show Does A.S.M.R. [VIDEO]
Close your blinds, shut off your lights, put on your headphones and turn up the volume as loud as it goes.
The latest and strangest sensation to cross the internet pathways have been these strange yet oddly satisfying A.S.M.R. videos on YouTube.
A.S.M.R. stands for Autonomous Sensory Meridian Response, which according to TheVerge.com is a "pleasant, physical or emotional feeling (not based in science) triggered most often by soft sounds such as vocal fry, rustling leaves, crinkling paper, or scratching dry skin."
You read that correctly: people listen to/watch these videos, because certain sounds when amplified instantly satisfy the senses from head to toe.
Whether or not you're into a woman or a man whispering Bible verses in your ear or the sound of a fork being pressed and slowly rotated in a bowl of hot, gooey, macaroni & cheese, different people respond to different sounds.
Michael Rock, Abby and myself took it upon ourselves to find the most satisfying sounds that when amplified would intensely heighten the emotions and senses of anyone who listens. From rice cakes to umbrellas to anti-bacterial gel, we displayed an A.S.M.R. demonstration that will surely make the hair on the back of your neck rise and the moisture on your lips glisten.
