Note: Best experienced with headphones.

This is a 25 minute ASMR (autonomous sensory meridian response) video released by IKEA to celebrate back to school/college season. Via Wikipedia for those of you who may not be familiar with ASMR while I try to find a quiet place in one of the building's stairwells for my morning cry:

Autonomous sensory meridian response (ASMR) is a colloquial term used for an experience characterized by a static-like or tingling sensation on the skin that typically begins on the scalp and moves down the back of the neck and upper spine. It has been compared with auditory-tactile synesthesia. ASMR signifies the subjective experience of "low-grade euphoria" characterised by "a combination of positive feelings and a distinct static-like tingling sensation on the skin". It is most commonly triggered by specific acoustic, visual and digital media stimuli

I didn't watch the whole thing, but I did skip around to listen to the woman whisper-talk into the microphone and rub her fingernails on everything in sight to see how the sounds would make my neck tingle. And boy did it tingle! Sooooo....are we supposed to be masturbating now or what?

Keep going for the video.

  • Nope. Killed it with fire 10 seconds in.

  • I felt a definite tingling.
    It doesn't make me want to go to Ikea.
    It does make me want sex.

  • Mtggeekgirl

    I just find her lisp like nails on a chalk board. I just cringed with every word, and not in a good way.

  • Kent

    She's a bit of a low talker, reminds me of a Seinfeld episode.

  • Jenness

    This is my feeling about this in a nutshell: "Me No Likey"

  • Draco Basileus

    This makes my skin crawl.

  • Jason Christopher

    I am so confused.... i mean aroused... i mean confused. Yeah ,that's it. Confused.

  • The_Wretched

    awe yeah, duvet time @ 6 minutes.

  • Frédéric Purenne

    characterised by "a combination of positive feelings and a distinct static-like tingling sensation on the skin"

    NOTHING in this video was positive. My skin wasn't involved, but my ears were raped.

  • 😆😄

    WTF DID I JUST WATCH ?!!!

  • Perpetual Pizza

    Ikea should remain Ikea.

  • Bling Nye

    "Sooooo....are we supposed to be masturbating now or what?"

    Oh, uh... give me about 15 minutes, I'll be good to go again baby.

  • Meh

    I really can't imagine this going over well. That narrator has a nightmare level voice.

  • GeneralDisorder

    I've never found an ASMR video that didn't sound like the person whispering had a bad case of cotton mouth. I can't deal with that shit.

  • Mtggeekgirl

    YES! Her voice is so bad!

  • The_Wretched

    Soothing and relaxing isn't nightmare. Just listen to it with ear buds at high volume.
