For those unaware, ASMR is a static-like, tingling sensation on the skin that is triggered by audio. According to medical journals, it’s a relaxing feeling that starts “across the scalp” and spreads to the “back of the neck and at times further areas.” Common triggers include whispering, crisp sounds, and slow movements.
As you’ll see in the video up top, Harry Potter is full of measured, hushed scenes that have ASMR potential. These include Mr. Ollivander opening drawers in his wand shop, Harry flicking through the pages of Tom Riddle’s diary, and Rita Skeeter’s quill scribbling on parchment paper.
