Jimmy Kimmel features ASMR on late night talk show

ASMR Autonomous Sensory Meridian Response UniversityJimmy Kimmel explored the curious world of ASMR videos – with the help of kids.

This week, his late night show on ABC featured a 5 minute segment of him talking to kids about ASMR.  The kids explained ASMR and they watched ASMR videos together.

I thought the kids did a great job of explaining ASMR, with enjoyable moments of amusement between the host and the kids.

More celebrities doing ASMR: Jake Gyllenhaal, Dakota Fanning, Elle Fanning, Julia Garner, Chloë Sevigny, Sadie Sink

ASMR Autonomous Sensory Meridian Response UniversityJake Gyllenhaal (actor in Brokeback Mountain, Donnie Darko, Nightcrawler) does a short interview with W Magazine which includes ASMR triggers.

He whispers about his day, plays with an old style camera, and twists bubble wrap.  He also bangs a chisel into wood with a rubber mallet, which may not be so ASMR-inducing for many individuals.

On the YouTube channel, Miu Miu, several actors join forces to create individual and collaborative ASMR videos.  The clips are less than a minute long and mostly involve whispering or quiet talking.

The Miu Miu team includes Sadie Sink (Stranger Things 2, Annie), Dakota Fanning (I am Sam, War of the Worlds, Charlotte’s Web), Elle Fanning (We Bought a Zoo, Maleficent), Julia Garner (Ozark, The Americans, We Are What We Are), and Chloë Sevigny (American Psycho, Big Love, American Horror Story).
