One of the most unique features of his videos is the ASMR Sounds. ASMR translates as “Autonomous Sensory Meridian Response,” something that Stomedy has described in his about page to mean “a euphoric experience characterized by a static-like or tingling sensation on the skin…” Well, in simple English it is just a weird sound made with the ultimate goal of keeping the listener engaged and sometimes frightened.
Stomedy runs a separate channel ASMR Sounds strictly dedicated to his love for all things ASMR. He posts on the channel every week and it boasts over 103,000 subscribers.
