ASMR or Autonomous Sensory Meridian Response is a term used to describe a euphoric experience which is represented by ‘the tingles,’ a static-like sensation on the skin that typically begins on the scalp and moves down the back of the neck and upper spine, precipitating relaxation. The term was actually coined in 2010, by Jennifer Allen, but the actual community started developing in 2007.  Subjects that have this experience, report feelings of positivity, relaxation, calmness, and overall well-being, while listening to ASMR.
The last 9 years, this phenomenon has grown to epic proportions, especially over the last 2 years. It has even spawned 100’s of YouTube stars, who are now basically making money just talking into digital stereo microphones! It’s absolutely amazing. Grab your headphones and check out a sample video of ASMR below, to get a better idea of what it actually is.
Thats it! This video posted less than a year ago has almost 2 million hits. Meanwhile, at UDCM, we struggle to get even 200 hits and we spend all our money and time, developing unique video ideas to make people laugh, but end up losing our jobs because our bosses lack leadership and then we get depressed and stumble across Autonomous Sensory Meridian Response videos to relax… and then get even more depressed because we can’t gain viewership like that.
Sorry about that. I tend to go off on tangents when I write. I will refrain from editing it, though. Maybe I should watch an ASMR video to chill out.
UDCM Attempts ASMR Videos
As you can tell, we’re a little frustrated at Upside Down Creative Media. It’s been a long 2 years filled with ups and downs, but we haven’t given up. Like the Deli Lamba always says, “When you fall off the horse, life gives you lemons.” With that in mind, we decided to attempt making an ASMR video with resident guru, Barney Sanders. If you can’t beat ’em. Join ’em.
So, grab your headphones, sit back, relax, and enjoy our attempt at ASMR.
