EPIC RAP BATTLES OF WHISPERY


A while back, Dan Bull messaged Ally and I with an ASMR rap battle proposition.  We were so on board because we're fans of Dan, and because we thought it would be really funny to whisper battle. Dan wrote all the lyrics based on our content, and we got to poke fun at ourselves---and at the tendency for some to try and pit us (and other ASMR content creators) against each other in the ASMR sphere, when we're actually great friends. We laughed so much working on this project.
You'll notice that our delivery is quiet and not in time with the lyrics. Dan didn't want us to rap his words---he wanted them delivered like we would in our videos. We did SOOOOOO many takes because it was super hard not to actually rap the lyrics. You may also notice that we start out whispering and get progressively more soft spoken as we go---that was Dan's idea, and it's a subtle detail that cracks me up.  Dan is REALLY smart, very kind, and of course, hilarious.  It was a pleasure working with him and getting to know him.  He's awesome!
Will we be appearing in Madison Square Garden anytime soon? Noooope hahahahaha. But we had a lot of fun working together, and we hope you guys can see the obvious and the subtle humor in the collab, and it makes you smile or laugh too. This was Dan's way of introducing his audience to ASMR, and I am very proud to have been able to be a part of it.

  1. Heather,
    I know this blog entry is not about what you recently went through...but I do not have youtube so I decided to leave my comment here instead.

    I just wanted to let you know how truly sorry I am about your having to go through what you have been suffering. I just learned about it today.

    I am praying for your speedy recovery and you take all the time you need. Don't worry about anything else except taking care of yourself right now. Not telling you what to do really, just letting you know that you are important enough to take some time out for yourself.

    I am also sending you some Reiki.

    I love you ♥
