Cleaning & Testing Action Figures | Unintentional ASMR | No Speaking

I clean, wipe dry, and test the articulation of a bunch of DC Classics 75th Anniversary action figures that came out around 2010 and which I was obsessed over. This video includes spray sounds, cloth wiping sounds, and the clicking & creaking of the figures' joints being articulated. I call this "Unintentional" because I am not deliberately forcing anything here: there is no tapping, no slow movements, no whispering, none of it! Just performing a task like one normally would, although I do keep ASMR in mind so as to avoid making any harsh and loud sounds (and any that I do accidentally make are addressed during editing, as always).

I've had my share of obsessive phases come and go throughout my life: certain comics, certain music groups & genres, certain movies & genres, certain authors & genres, photographing bugs, ASMR, and of course: action figures! What can I say? For better or for worse, I was a raised on pop culture. Growing up I had a modest collection of action figures ranging from Star Wars, He-Man to G.I. Joe and Gobots (because I feel like we couldn't afford Transformers for some reason. Maybe they were more expensive than most action figures and toys?). Then we got rid of them all because we weren't into collecting and never put a lot of value on material possessions. And to a certain degree, thankfully, I'm still that way today.

Oh, and if you're going to clean anything that has paint on it, maybe don't use rubbing alcohol like the idiot did in this video. As you can see on Deadman 00:36:55 and Eclipso 00:13:12 the paint on their chests gets rubbed off. Or maybe the paint wasn't properly finished, I don't know. I probably should have just used water.

What is ASMR?

ASMR stands for Autonomous Sensory Meridian Response. It's a non-scientific word that an everyday person came up with to describe the feeling characterized as a pleasurable tingling sensation felt in the head, scalp, back and other regions of the body in response to visual, auditory, tactile, olfactory, and/or cognitive stimuli, such as crinkling bags, hand movements, whispering, personal attention or watching someone perform a task. It's like goosebumps but much more pleasant and without the uncomfortable chills.

ASMR videos are meant to intentionally induce this sensation in the viewer, often referred to as "tingles", but the videos also serve to provide a relaxing, calming and soothing experience for the viewer. Many people who do not experience ASMR still enjoy the videos for their calming and sleepy effect.
