Right now more than ever, the internet is filled with noise. Open your social media, and overnight everyone turned into chefs, bartenders, wellness gurus with various homemade videos scattered all over the internet. While some are entertaining, spending your weekend listening to everyone talking can get a bit stressful. So, we turned to ASMR, and off we go inside the rabbit hole. 

What is ASMR? A term coined in 2010, autonomous sensory meridian response, more commonly referred to as ASMR, is described as that tingling sensation a person feels in response to certain visual or auditory stimuli. In YouTube, these stimuli are usually the video recording of whispering voices, tapping of objects, eating, or other weird soft sounds created with various objects. If you start Googling ASMR, you'll enter a whole new universe. Here are some local and Asian videos that will keep you glued on your screens – some compilations are just weird, others are entertaining, relaxing, and oddly satisfying.
