EXO Lay Eating A Hot Dog Is The ASMR You Didn’t Know You Needed

Get ready for some scalp-tingling goodness.

EXO‘s Lay uploaded a video to his Instagram on September 9 (KST) and it’s not what you might expect! Normally, the Chinese K-Pop idol posts pictures and videos keeping fans updated on what he’s doing professionally, with occasional glimpses into his personal life, like videos of him working out or training. This time, however, he posted a video of him eating a hot dog and not only is he incredibly adorable in it, but it’s also the ASMR video you didn’t know you needed in your life until you watch it!

Autonomous Sensory Meridian Response (ASMR) is a feeling of comfort combined with a tingling sensation in the scalp and down the back of the neck as experienced by some people in response to a certain stimulus, often a particular sound.

His camera amazingly picks up the sound of the wrapper crinkling, birds cawing in the background, and his excited breathing before he bites into the tasty snack. More importantly, the sound of his chewing and licking his fingers clean can clearly be heard.

Fans of food ASMR, in this case, find it satisfying to hear the over exaggerated sounds a person makes while eating.

In addition to providing fans with scalp-tingling ASMR, Lay was the perfect boyfriend as he explained that the hot dog is very famous before offering viewers a bite.

This hot dog, very famous hot dog. You wanna eat?
