I often wonder if Dr. James Kelly realizes that he’s become a minor YouTube star, thanks to his cranial nerve exam video where he treats Pat LaFontaine. Like so many others, this was one of the first videos I watched when I discovered ASMR. And between Dr. Kelly’s soothing voice and calming manner, it’s quite possibly one of the most superb ASMR videos out there.
It’s too bad he didn’t produce any more videos like this (at least that I can find), because if he did, he might have become one of founding fathers of ASMR. Instead he had to settle for a lifetime of only being a respected neurologist. Poor guy.
