Does this video featuring the avatar and whispery voice of Strawberry Singh give you a delicious tickling sensation on your spine? Because that's precisely what an ASMR video, which this is, is supposed to do. As Janine Hawkins once explained, it's a popular sub-genre of gaming videos on YouTube:
They cater to gamers who experience ASMR." I.E., Autonomous sensory meridian response, usually a pleasant tingling sensation. Yes, there are game-watching videos devoted to creating that soothing feeling. (One ASMR video channel, as Iris notes, has over 30,000 subscribers.)
Consider me tickled! I'd love to see/hear more SL machinima-meets-ASMR videos like this -- great (and buzzy!) way to experience beautiful locations in the metaverse, hear the real voices of SL YouTubers.
