Almost all of the most famous reality television moments involve some sort of yelling, screaming, and physical altercations. It’s why we love it so much – the drama of it all.
Combining these aggressive, loud screaming matches with the calming sounds of ASMR (autonomous sensory meridian response) might sound a bit counter-intuitive, but it makes for hilarious results.
Over the past few weeks, Twitter users have been recording themselves doing the trademark ASMR whispers over the lines of some of reality TV’s most vicious fights.
For instance, here’s the ASMR version of Sammi and Jenni’s fight during the second season of “Jersey Shore,” after it was revealed that Jenni and Snooki had written Sammi an anonymous note detailing her boyfriend Ronnie’s infidelity.

RuPaul’s Drag Race fans have gotten in on the action too, dubbing the infamous “Untucked” fight between Shangela and Mimi Imfurst.
Vintage reality TV has gotten the ASMR treatment, as well. This fight between contestants Pumkin and New York comes from VH1 series “Flavour of Love.”
