Plugged In: Gibi ASMR Reveals the Answer to Your Problems
In another installment of Plugged In, we get to know @GibiOfficial, a.k.a. Gibi ASMR. We asked the 24-year-old ASMRtist and Twitch streamer what inspires her, how she saves money, and what's exactly on her essentials list.
Ever wonder how a successful Youtuber's mind works? Apparently, it's a constant stream of "chill" and "Baby Shark." Hey, there's a reason why Gibi has over 2 million subscribers to her channel.
Get to know the popular creator a little bit better below.
Milk + Honey: What products are you loving right now and why?
Fake eyelashes because they're so easy to glue on and give your eyes a pop on camera. [Editor's note: Ardell Lash Wispies are affordable ($4.99), Honey, and Hollywood-approved.]
My new Yamaha MG10XU mixer! Has great effects for ASMR and a great voice compressor when I'm screaming in game on stream.
Kate Spade shoulder bag because it's the perfect size and is hands-free!
Bullet blender to make breakfast that I can drink when I'm answering emails! Also I'm trying to get swole.
Art-San Coffee, especially in German Chocolate! My friend Nips designed the label for it, and the coffee is SO GOOD.
What's the last thing that made you smile?
I'm watching through Friends for the first time, and I love Chandler. So, Chandler.
What's your theme song?
"Theme of King JJ" from Yuri! On Ice or "Survival" by Muse...depends on if I'm in a goofy or motivational mood.
What's the last thing you splurged on?
Hamilton tickets. It was amazing.
What's absolutely something you refuse to pay a premium for?
Checking bags on a flight. I will shove my entire apartment into one free carry-on.
What's the best and worst comment you ever received on social?
I get so happy when people tell me my videos help them when they can't sleep, because that's what I use ASMR for. It's surreal to know that I can be that person for somebody else. People actually send the absolute nicest messages, and it makes me so happy.
I got a few horrifically violent comments from the same user. When I went to their page, I found out it was a 9-year-old boy. Great!
What's your favorite line from a movie, book, or song?
"To love another person is to see the face of God" from Les Misérables.
Best seemingly random advice?
I think most problems can be solved by following the word: "chill." I tell myself this often lol.
What's the weirdest thought you've ever had?
My "head songs" are usually cycling between "The Sound of Music" and "Baby Shark," so my thoughts are usually pretty full.
How do you get a good night's sleep?
With a pair of sleep friendly headphones and a good roleplay ASMR video. I also sleep better when my room is clean.
What makes you happiest?
When a puppy comes and says hi to you on the street without you prompting it. Also like...my family.
