ASMR is coming to over 70 million U.S. televisions.
On October 3, 2017, the TV network, IFC, announced they will begin showing video content from the website, Funny or Die.
One of those programs will include, “ASMR with Kelly Whispers.”
Blake Callaway, the executive vice president of marketing and digital media for IFC, declared the following in a press release,
“Aspiring painters, lonely chefs, and ASMR enthusiasts have a new programming line-up created just for them.”
The press release further shared the start date for the programming, and the start date for, “ASMR with Kelly Whispers”,
“On Saturday, October 7, FODtv will launch with Learn to Paint with the Shirtless Painter. Subsequent Saturdays, IFC viewers will be introduced to a variety of Funny Or Die’s all-star and up-and-coming talent including: ASMR with Kelly Whispers (Saturday, October 14)…”
What is “ASMR with Kelly Whispers”? It is a mix of ASMR and comedy.
The videos show a young woman sitting in front of a microphone. She whispers, talks softly, taps, scratches, crinkles, and plays with brushes.
Some of her traditional ASMR triggers are done well enough that they may induce tingles in some viewers.
But be prepared for the incorporation of joking, smoking, and some non-traditional ASMR video objects, actions, and statements.
Are you curious and have access to the IFC network? Then watch for it to appear on October 14th, 2017.
