Meet Zoey (and her mom), the 7-year old ASMR artist on the “Best Day Ever ASMR” YouTube Channel

The “Best Day Ever” YouTube channel was started in 2013, which is also the birth year of the current star of the channel, 7-year old Zoey.

Perhaps Zoey’s mother, Penny, started the channel that year in hopes of capturing and sharing family moments.  Sure enough, the early videos on the channel are happy and jovial family moments of their times in Georgia, U.S..

Early this year in 2020, 7-year old Zoey began creating ASMR videos, and the channel is now called “Best Day Ever ASMR.”    The video channel has grown quickly with 14,000 subscribers and 56 well-produced, deeply relaxing, whimsical, fun, and colorful ASMR videos starring 7-year old Zoey.

I interviewed Zoey and her mom  Penny to find out more about their channel.   Penny shares how Zoey became inspired to create ASMR videos, how both parents help her to create the videos, how they optimize her personal safety, and how they guide her to make age-appropriate content.    Zoey shares why she likes to create ASMR videos, if she experiences ASMR, and shares 3 tips for other young creators of ASMR videos.

Below are my questions in bold, their replies in italics, and a link to the “Best Day Ever ASMR” YouTube channel.

Maiko Yamamoto is an Artistic Director and member of the Theatre Replacement theatre company in Vancouver, Canada. She has a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree, with a specialization in Theatre, along with a Masters of Applied Arts in visual arts.

Part of the mission of Maiko and her theatre company is to “build performances that react to contemporary existence.”
