I Tried ASMR For The First Time

  • Published on Jan 28, 2019
  • And we're back! Here is a video we filmed at the end of last year that I'm excited to finally release! Watch the first half now and save the second half for nap time, lol.
    So I've seen a lot of non-ASMR youtubers release ASMR videos in the last few months, so I wanted to do a deep dive into what ASMR is and then try an ASMR segment of my own. Thankfully, I got Gibi of Gibi ASMR to help me figure out what it's all about. What did you think of my ASMR segment? Did you like the haircut roleplay? Did any part give you tingles?
    You can check out Gibi's channel here! ruclip.com/channel/UCE6acMV3m35znLcf0JGNn7Q
    TYPO: Also, 8:49 isn't Caroline ASMR it's Ting Ting ASMR! So sorry!

    ARRRGGGG You can't TRY ASMR, it's not a genre it's a bloody sensory response. You might as well say you are going to try goosebumps or dizziness. It's a tingling sensation you get from certain sounds or visuals. HOW THE HELL DOES THIS GET OVERLOOKED OVER AND OVER. Can we please stop all people who don't get that response from bloody trying to make these videos? You don't understand what aspects of the videos trigger it - you are just making crap you don't understand. It's like the colourblind trying to match paint. It's like a totally deaf person making music. It's like an asexual making porn. STAHP.

    well done for trying. I've never tried ASMR so I figured I'd give it a shot. Turns out I hate it. I hate whispering anyways like something about it hurts my ears but the longer it went on the more I actually had a visceral reaction and wanted to throw up... guess we both learned something new today!!

    Not tryin to hate but just for me as a viewer and other people if they agree with me is if when you were making ASMR not talk as much! But this I is just my experience as a viewer but I think you did really good!🥰

    You should persue in making asmr. Your voice is so soothing. But of course you would continue making your regular amazing videos if you did so do that.

    So totally random but for some reason this just makes me think of my teenage yrs when I would go down stairs to get food to eat in the middle of the night while my parents are sleeping and I try to be super quiet it so I wouldn’t wake my parents up but the more I tried to keep quiet the more noisier it gets, especially those damn chips bags 😂😂🤣🤣
