Howard explores the A.S.M.R. video phenomenon

August 8, 2018

Good Morning Everybody!

If you get a satisfying tingle in your scalp and neck upon hearing certain sounds like whispering or chewing food, you may be a fan of A.S.M.R. videos.

Howard explored the growing category of videos Wednesday morning which cater to people who experience autonomous sensory meridian response, or A.S.M.R.

One video racked up millions of views from a woman whispering about a relaxing scalp massage. Others feature fake police officers writing tickets, people eating pickles, and other seemingly mundane scenarios.

The phenomenon has even grown to include celebrity videos, like the one from “Wonder Woman” star Gal Gadot.

Robin Quivers was horrified. “I think whispering is ugly,” she said. “I’m throwing up.”

Howard wondered if A.S.M.R. fans would be satisfied by a video from “Flirty Gary” or Ronnie the Limo Driver, adding that even the Wack Pack could join in on the fun.
