It's another night in the underground bunker as Papa tries his best to entertain his son (you, the viewer) in this harsh and unforgiving new world.
If you don't know what ASMR is, check the bottom of this description for an explanation.
This parody is based on the film The Road, a favorite and Top 10 film of all time for me. The film is based on Cormac McCarthy's Pulitzer Prize winning novel of the same name.
I thought I would take a more whimsical (for the most part) approach rather than regurgitate what one might expect, by recreating and drawing out one of the more memorable scenes from the film that I felt had ASMR potential. I missed a couple of character nuances, such as the father coughing occasionally.
I hope you enjoy, especially if you are a fan of the film and/or the book.

What is ASMR?
To me, ASMR is 2 things: a sensation and a medium (like music for example).
The sensation itself (ASMR) stands for Autonomous Sensory Meridian Response and is the current (non-scientific) name given to the feeling characterized as a pleasurable tingling sensation felt in the head, scalp, back and other regions of the body in response to visual, auditory, tactile, olfactory, and/or cognitive stimuli, such as crinkling bags, hand movements, whispering, personal attention or watching someone perform a task. It's like goosebumps, but much more pleasant.
ASMR videos, the medium, are not only meant to help induce the sensation or "tingles" in the viewer, but also help provide a relaxing, calming and soothing experience for the viewer. They often help those dealing with anxiety, stress, headaches, insomnia, mental health issues, concentrating, studying and more. It is quite therapeutic, for both the creator and recipient, which is not that much different than the mediums of music and painting, for example.
Many people who do not experience ASMR still enjoy the videos for their calming and sleepy effect.
