Kyle and Jackie O are often trying out the latest trends, but we feel seriously weird after one that they tested on the air this morning…And if you were sitting in your car listening we bet you’re feeling the same way as us right about now.
Remember how that one woman filmed herself and recorded the sound of her biting into some pickles? Well, this is known as ASMR and though it might seem absolutely FERAL to most people (we’re definitely in this boat), to some it’s a really calming and relaxing technique.
If you’re unsure what that is, basically ASMR stands for Autonomous Sensory Meridian Response and it’s when people use gentle whispering and sharp sounds such as tapping, scratching, or as we found out today, chewing, to relax people and give them a tingling sensation.
And well, Kyle and Jackie decided to give it a go themselves to see if it really does work!
We collected together some muesli, an apple, some nuts and a coffee to create our own symphony of eating sounds and well…it was cringey to say the least!
Have a listen to Kyle and Jackie’s ASMR attempt for yourself in the video above and let us know how you think they did!
