We all know that PlayStation 5's lead system architect, Mark Cerny, has the most soothing voice in the games industry. He always speaks in a relaxed tone, as though he's reading us all a bedtime story. It's never not a pleasure to listen to the man talk, even when it's about next-gen mumbo jumbo. Why not take advantage of his smooth vocals and turn him into the ASMR genius he was born to be? One person has had such an idea, and we've ended up with the above.
Cerny's entire, hour-long 'Road to PS5' presentation is included here, but with added reverb and ambient music to really help you feel relaxed. ASMR -- which stands for autonomous sensory meridian response -- is a tingling sensation you feel when you hear certain audio, and it's a little different for each person. While the popular YouTube trend typically involves binaural sound, you won't find any of that here. There's no glass-tapping or crisp-eating going on in this video. It's more of a meditative, sleepy experience, and in that respect it's hilariously effective. If you're having trouble nodding off, plug in Cerny and have him sooth you to sleep with talk of solid state drives and power consumption.
