♪ Intro Theme ♪ (Burnie) Gavin and I have basically the same ASMR. What’s that– (Gus) ASMR
(Burnie) –triggers. (Ali of ASMRrequests) I’m here to tell you about ASMR. (Man, whisper) A-S-M-R (Gavin) I don’t even know what it stands for. (Burnie) Au–autonomous, Meri–
Oh. Okay. I’m already off. I put the M first. (Burnie) Autonomous…
(Gavin) (laughs) (Ali) Autonomous Sensory Meridian Response (Man) ASMR is a fairly recent phenomenon. (Burnie) It seems to be a scientific term that has been born out of online videos. (Ali) It sort of feels like a relaxing, euphoric, tingly sensation. (Man) It’s kind of like goosebumps, but it can last a little longer and is more pleasant. (Ali) A lot of people really enjoy soft voices–like whispers. (Bob Ross) Now there, let’s build us a happy little mountain. (Bob Ross) There. There. There we go. Look at that. (Gavin) There’s two categories of ASMR. Intentional and unintentional. (Burnie) When I watched Baba’s videos for the first time, I was like “Why does this thing have two million views?” (Ali) Baba is a bit of a mystery to me. (Girl) I think it’s awesome. (Man) This is really fascinating. Right. (Burnie) I watch this video every night before I go to bed. (Gavin) I got tingles the moment you showed it to me. (Burnie) When are we going to go see Baba? (Burnie) Me and you.
(Gavin). Ooh, I want him to rub my head down. (Burnie) It’s called “The World’s Greatest Head Massage”. (Burnie) I have the address.
(Gavin) Do you think he’s still there? (Burnie) Yeah. (Gavin) We’re about to fly halfway across the world to India for a 15-minute head rub. (Gus) That’s a long way to go.
(Burnie) Are you jealous? (Gus) No. (Pilot Speaking over PA System) Oh. We managed to shave a little bit off this flight to Delhi today. (Gavin) Oop. Sorry. (Gavin) I feel like I’m playing Frogger. (Burnie) Do you feel like you’re sitting in 108°F (42°C) right now? (Gavin) Well, I feel wet…so yeah. (Burnie) Baba’s shop is not just open for walk-in.
(Man) It is by appointment. (Burnie) I see.
(Man) We have to find him. (Burnie) So we have to go on this hunt for Baba. (Burnie) Do you know Baba Sen? (Burnie) Baba is listed as “The Cosmic Barber” and he uses cosmic energy. (Burnie) And I’m list pfft, cosmic energy. Okay.
(Gavin) It gets us, and we’re kind of skeptical still. (Gavin) I think it’s universally agreed that ASMR is like scientifically a load of crap. (Girl) We need the science behind it. We need FMRI scans. (Burnie) Something happens that triggers the nerves and you feel it. (Burnie) Is there something to this? (Burnie) There’s some kind of connection that I can’t explain there. (Mystery Man) Relax Burnie. Relax Gavin.
