ASMR videos are popular for scratching a brain-itch that you didn’t even know you had. There’s been several stages to this phenomenon that have resulted in millions of YouTube and Instagram videos, and that can take up tons of your time because they’re really hard to stop watching. First there were soap cutting videos, then came the slime videos, and the nail stamping Instagram clips. Now, it’s gorgeous looking dab videos called “melt shots.”
Dabbing is a very popular process that requires some resin, a torch, a dabbing rig or a pipe. It’s the latest “cool” way of getting high, producing powerful results through the use of small doses of marijuana concentrates.
What makes these videos so appealing is the burning process of the resin, which bubbles up smoothly and in a satisfying way, resulting in a melt shot that looks like a Darren Aronofsky directed short—minus all the sad and scary stuff of course.
These psychedelic videos are commonly paired with cool music and smooth editing, concluding in a burst of milky clouds that make the viewing experience all the more pleasurable. Melt shots are extremely re-watchable due to how brief they are, resulting in the perfect combination of elements that make up a viral hit.
