Say farewell to memes taking over your Instagram feed. Instead, a new trend is popping up: videos of putty, slime, paint, and other materials being mixed, touched, cut, or pinched. If you watch one of these videos, you might feel yourself relaxing and letting go of any worries from the day. That's because these videos are part of ASMR (autonomous sensory meridian response), an experience where watching videos that do one of the above puts you at ease. Our new favorite account is crunchyvideos, a collection of different slimes and putties being pinched or touched to make a sound.
The account, with more than 25,000 followers, does exactly like what it sounds like: it posts videos of people crunching something up to make a sound. It's incredibly soothing to see something turn into a new mold and hear it at the same time. If you need any help sleeping or need a second to relax, try watching some of our favorites ahead.
