A simple yet fascinating video has gone viral thanks to its stress-busting effects.
A Lithuania-based videographer, Linas Lakavicius, uploaded the video of red tomatoes being cut up from start to finish, the twist being that the whole process had been played in reverse.
The combination of the moving image and the sound is designed to produce what is known as an autonomous sensory meridian response (ASMR)

Not all people out there has an ASMR to such events, but for those who do, it may be described as a "brain orgasm".
People who experience the phenomenon say they feel a tingling that spreads from the back of the scalp down the back of the neck to the top of the shoulders, creating a sense of euphoria that is extremely relaxing.
Triggers can be anything from a whispering voice to watching someone perform a repetitive task.
As a matter of fact, there is an entire internet niche devoted to autonomous sensory meridian response videos.
