Book a trip to planet Gliese 581-G

Many people are going to be scratching their heads over this one. This is an “ASMR (Autonomous Sensory Meridian Response” video. ASMR is a frisson that some people experience when sensing particular stimuli, usually in the scalp and shoulders. It’s profoundly relaxing, and not sexual in nature. It’s soporific rather that stimulating, and a “good” ASMR video will put you to sleep facedown on your keyboard. This frisson can be triggered by sounds, like tapping noises, particular types of voices, and some visual stimuli. ASMR videos are a strange little corner of the internet.

This particular ASMR video performer has produced a travel agency video for a vacation trip to the planet Gliese 581-G, which is much more elaborate than most ASMR videos, with some not bad special effects. This is “Departure 1"


If you experience ASMR; enjoy. If you don’t, then you’ll have no clue what’s going on, except as a visit to a futuristic travel agency, and some general weirdness.

Her follow-up is far more elaborate, and involves the trip itself. “Departure 2"
