ASMR on Twitch Has Reached a New Level After Streamer Uses Chainsaw

The trend of ‘ASMR’ (Autonomous sensory meridian response) streaming on Twitch has grown significantly over the past 12 months, but one streamer has taken it to a whole new level – with a chainsaw.

If unfamiliar, ASMR is a bit of an odd phenomenon. It’s basic premise is to relax people, giving them a tingling sensation physically on the back of the head and spine, achieved through both auditory and visual ‘triggers’.

These triggers most commonly include whispering, nail tapping on hard objects and soft brushing noises. Some more unusual examples include smacking of the lips.

It has become popular on Twitch for a few reasons, and has become so frequent that some users are even complaining that it is flooding the In Real Life or ‘IRL’ (non-gaming) section of the site.

Most streamers stick to the basics, and most aren’t exactly ASMR professionals, but rather follow guides and imitate others to achieve their ASMR affect.

But one streamer by the name ‘Pauldances’ has really taken it to a new level, by using a live chainsaw in what he (jokingly) labels an ASMR stream.

We would need an ASMR expert to tell us if this instrument really has the desired affect of ASMR, but it sounds unlikely given the volume and teeth-gritting sonics.

As aforementioned, some have called for ASMR streams to be given their separate category, and if anything this chainsaw stream may help that side of the argument.

The more ridiculous and creative these ASMR streams get, the more distinct they become from what one may expect from their typical IRL content.

Thankfully, Pauldances confirms it was just a bit of comedy, a ‘parody’ of ASMR streams.

Social media mogul and reality tv star Kylie Jenner is known as much for her lipstick line as she is for her over-the-top Halloween costumes, and one of her 2020 looks absolutely “killed” the competition — in part due to the talents of James Charles.

As soon as Halloween rolls around — even during the current health crisis — fans look toward to the crazy costumes that celebrities will pull off, which is almost always a visual treat due to their top-tier budgets and friendships with special effects artists.

Kylie Jenner is one such celeb, who has turned heads across the net for her rendition of a Barbie doll and Ariel from the Little Mermaid — not to mention the time she dressed up as a woodland fairy.

However, her latest costume has taken a more “wild” turn, as inspired by her brand-new Cheetah-themed makeup collection.

Kylie Jenner has completely floored fans throughout the years with her creative Halloween costumes, one of which was a classic fairy.

Partnering up with YouTuber-slash-makeup artist James Charles, Kylie decided to go full-on big cat, with Charles lending his own talents to deliver some stunning special effects.

Using tissue and liquid latex, James created three fake slash marks on her left cheek, as though Kylie had been scratched by the very Cheetah from her makeup collection.

After applying the rest of her makeup — also using the Cheetah collection — Charles completed the look by using black and red eyeshadows, as well as fake blood, to create a surprisingly realistic facial injury.

It’s clear that no cat scratch is going to get Kylie down, though, as evidenced by how amazingly fierce the entire ensemble came together, which the two showed off in a no-nonsense Instagram photo.

As for Kylie’s actual Halloween costume on the official holiday, she isn’t giving out any hints, preferring to keep it a surprise on the actual day (even though James tried his best to get her to spill the beans).
