ASMR, which stands for Autonomous Sensory Meridian Response, can have a profound effect on people. Some academics link and emotional synesthesia. It’s also a big money earner on Twitch and YouTube.
Like most things, though, ASMR isn’t for everyone. This particular ASMR video, I suspect, has a much broader appeal because something goes horribly wrong.
The vid is the work of Rhino Stew, who have over 8 million views on their channel and who have been on YouTube since 2015.
The quality of this alien encounter was certainly high enough to get me interested in their main show. That’s called 2 Kawaii 4 Comfort and is about the bad things that happen when five friends go on a trip to an anime convention.
