    Normally prefer whisper ASMR but towards the end I got some tingles on my forehead; wonderful video!

    Very amazing documentary (at least to me)! What they do for Baba at the end is why I choose to support these people and their endeavor to entertain. Also I absolutely subbed to Baba's channel

    I'm so disappointing that I barely got tingles from this one, Gavins too. Baba usually gives me the best tingles. I think since I know who they are, I'm focusing too much on their reactions and not enough on what's going on.

      I think that was my struggle with Gavin's video too, @kariosa. This one seemed to work for me, for whatever reason. I generally stick to the intentional videos rather than the unintentional ones, but this one gave me the tingles, so yay!

      The big factor is that in the other videos, the customers are strangers to you, but in this and Gavin's, Burnie and Gavin are not complete strangers to you.
      So it is affecting the way you watch and listen to this.

    Thank you for making this, the whole thing was a joy. It seems to me Baba's wisdom could do a quite a bit of good for many people, regardless of their stance on ASMR.


    I eagerly look forward to any future documentaries RT makes.

    As I watch this, I'm pretty sure it means ASMR just isn't for me. I get the tingly feeling on the back of my neck as I'm watching, but I guess I don't understand the draw of that. Its not that I dislike it, I just don't feel like going out of my way to find more. And for me at least, this kind of thing is light years ahead of the whispering/mouth noises thing thats in a lot of ASMR. I also just don't find the videos engaging enough, I find myself bored partway through and tab to something else, or check my phone.


    I find it fascinating though. That just simple sights/sounds can trigger this kind of response is really interesting. I'm just not a fan.


    But that's just me, you keep doing you, Internet.

    For some reason I got at tension headache watching this LOL. I know I've felt the ASMR tinglies before but I can't remember where or why, I just remembered it felt weird and not at all relaxing. I wish it was as soothing for me as it is for others so I could use it to help me sleep. Alas.

      Then it's not a trigger for you! You may not have any sort of triggers even. But ASMR (which is really just the scientific sounding way of naming the phenomenon of getting a pleasant, relaxing sensation from watching or listening to certain things) is not something you can't "not believe" because you can't deny that people are obviously experiencing that sensation, which is all ASMR is defined as. Not everyone experiences it, though, but some people not experiencing it doesn't mean it isn't a thing (It would be like people who don't get migraines saying they don't believe in migraines because they've never experienced one, but it's such a widely recorded phenomenon that we know it's a legitimate thing that occurs to at least some people)

    I watched Gavin's video, felt no tingles.

    I watched this video, felt the tingles!


    Usually, the unintentional ASMR videos don't do much for me, but this one really hit the spot. Also, the documentary was an absolute joy to watch, Baba's positive energy is infectious, even through the screen - I couldn't stop smiling!

    Is it just me or does the thumbnail with Baba's hands over Burnie's hair make it look like Mile Luna is in the chair?

    I guess I just don't get this ASMR hype. Doesn't do anything for me at all.


    Sure getting that head massage would feel absolutely sensational, I'm jealous tbh, but for people to say they get these tingles n whatnot from just watching it and other ASMR type videos, I dunno, just makes me think they are sexually aroused way too easily.


    edit: typo

    • themagicpyro FIRST Member Star(s) Indication of membership status - One star is a FIRST member, two stars is Double Gold

      Eh, I can see how it can easily be misunderstood as that, but since I have experienced ASMR a few times before, I can say it is a totally different sensation.

    This is fucking fascinating -- but also, am I the only one who had a stray thought along the lines of, "Baba could snap Burnie's neck at any moment and he would never know what hit him". No? Just me? Aight.

      Yeah I'm not really into it at all, but it's definitely cool to see him finally get to do this. He just seemed so happy and relaxed afterwards.

      You're not alone. The most I can feel is calmness when I watch the video, but none of the tingling like what Gavin and Burnie had described.

    • BumperJumperZ Busy Recording n Editing

      ASMR is a weird new trend so people are still learning about it. For some reason not everybody gets tingles or even gets a relaxing feeling when watching. Sorry dude but you're a part of the minority of it :(

    • HarrisonFoun FIRST Member Star(s) Indication of membership status - One star is a FIRST member, two stars is Double Gold

      8 months ago

      @BumperJumperZ is it really the minority of people? Because ASMR really seems like a niche thing. Like a fetish that's not exactly sexual but still kind of seems sexual like the food eating streams in South Korea.


      Seems even more niche after this video is getting very little attention it despite the constant promotion of it.

    I love looking at Gavs and Burnie's faces when they're first in the chair. While they're beaming with excitement, they have to contain it and stay calm. By the end it's no doubt they became truly relaxed and reenergized. What an amazing journey!!

    What's great is after watching the doc then watching this video, you can see at the beginning a little bit of excited nervousness in Burnie but after the massage is done, he is not just relaxed but almost elightened. I don't get ASMR myself, but this is something I'd like to experience.
