"What exactly do you do at work?" our future children ask.
"Share videos of slimy fictional monsters designed to help people relax, dear child," we reply.
"And this is considered a real job?" they wonder.

Yes, today we bring you a video we'd never have expected to see, but one that will no doubt pique your curiosity just a little, even if you don't want to admit it.

The Pokémon Company has shared a new ASMR video to its Pokémon Kids TV YouTube channel, this time featuring a Grimer sliding around over a number of different surfaces. "This is an ASMR video for those who have always wondered how Grimer sounds when it moves," the description says. We're not sure how many people fall into that category, but let's go with it.

Our favourite moment comes at the 1:30 mark, when Grimer gets sucked up through a tube and exits with a satisfying splat on the wall. Headphones are recommended "for optimal effect".

Weirdly enough, this isn't the first time we've been treated to a gaming-related ASMR video. The Pokémon Company also shared a Charmander video recently, there was a Zelda: Breath of the Wild one, and there was even a video of someone playing Switch by the fireplace and making a sandwich.

Have fun!
