Video of 'You' Star Penn Badgley Doing ASMR Has Sent Twitter Into Meltdown | 22 Words

When You hit Netflix at the end of last year, the whole world watched, entranced, as the creepiest bookshop employee ever seduced his writing-student obsession, and left a pile of corpses in his wake. While there was never going to be a happy ending for Penn Badgely's Joe, there was good news for creators of the series, as the terrifying thriller was renewed for another season. You season 2 dropped just last week, and yet again, the world has gone wild for murderous (yet oddly charming) lead, Joe - played by Penn Badgely.

Now a video of Penn doing ASMR has surfaced on Twitter - and the world has gone absolutely wild for it.

Netflix's You hit our screens on December 26th of 2018.

Perfect for those in the post-Christmas slump, the psychological thriller followed the ill-fated romantic pursuits of a terrifying sociopath named Joe.

It was based on the 2014 novel of the same name by Caroline Kepnes.

In the series, Jow becomes absolutely obsessed with a writing student and all-around Millenial cliche named Guinevere Beck, stopping at nothing to gain her affections.

Some of Joe's actions are pretty questionable.

And by questionable, we mean terrifying. What starts with him intensely investigating Beck's social media accounts quickly descends into some full-blown stalking. The girl seriously needed to invest in some curtains.

And it got worse.

By the end of series one, not only were all of Beck's closest acquaintances murdered but (spoiler alert), Beck had to go too. She simply knew too much about Joe's horrifying habits.

Because you can't get away with this stuff forever, right?

Although (worryingly enough), Joe seems to have managed to go on a full-blown killing spree without consequences - and there was an even more bizarre reaction to his behavior.

Because in spite of the fact Joe Goldberg was a stalker and murderer?

Yep, that's right. Pretty much the whole of the internet developed a huge crush on him. This is why we can't have nice things.

After the trail of destruction Joe left behind in New York, season two of You had a change of scenery.

It first starts with Joe moving cross country to Los Angeles, with the best intentions to turn over a new leaf, and leave all the creepiness and crimes back in NYC.

And with a new city, comes a new love interest.

As Beck is (sadly) no more, Joe obviously needed a new victim - sorry, sorry, girlfriend. Love Quinn was played by Victoria Pedretti, who you may recognize from The Haunting of Hill House.

And one thing was for certain.

Joe wasn't going to be unable to outrun his past for too long. You can take the man away from stalking, but you can't take the stalker out of the man, after all.

The second series of You was loosely based on Kepnes' follow up book.

The second book, called Hidden Bodies, came out in 2016.

But it's safe to say fans of series 1 were in for a treat.

"Joe is always trying to be a good guy but yet somehow he's finding himself in these thriller, horror kind of situations. It's terrible for him but I think it's going to be so much fun for the audience," Gamble says.

And there was another reason fans were excited for series 2.

Another opportunity to look at Penn Badgely's oddly charming face.

Why is the internet so attracted to this terrifying man?

Who knows - but Penn's latest move has cemented him as Twitter's ultimate heartthrob.

Because a video has surfaced that's got the whole internet talking.

Penn Badgely has done an ASMR video that's made everyone online go absolutely crazy.

The reason?

It's given everyone goosebumps - but, like, in a good way.

Many had this reaction.

Before ASMR vid: not that interested in You. After ASMR vid: highly interested in You.

And some got straight to the point.

Not much to add to this reaction ...

Some were confused.

Having never been attracted to Penn, could one ASMR video change everything?

Some felt emotional.

Is this what love feels like?

While for others this was just confirmation of what they already knew.

Penn Badgely is certainly doing it for some people...

Some found themselves addicted.

Just one more listen can't hurt, right?

Others noticed this.

We thought it was strange that women liked Ted Bundy - until now.

Some were left feeling troubled.

Penn's acting talent is hard to deny based on how many of us have a crush on Joe Goldberg.

Some pointed this out.

If you like Joe Goldberg, you're gonna love Dan Humphrey.

But things have only gotten worse.

Dan Humphrey was questionable - but Joe Goldberg is undeniably a villain.

Some realized dark truths about themselves.

Hey, the first part of recovery is acceptance!

Although some were quick to make this distinction.

Penn does not mean Joe - OK?

Some found a unique use for the video.

Struggling with insomnia? Penn Badgely could be your unlikely cure!

While some looked to the future.

Is there any role this man can't play?

And some had a pretty simple response.

ASMR-heads get it.

While for some, it all got too much.

We can see where they're coming from!

But one thing is for sure.

This may be the ultimate thirst trap of all time.

Luckily, the internet was on hand to cool us down.

Proof that nobody is 100% perfect.

Here's the video that got everybody talking.

Who knew all it took was 2 microphones to send the world totally "feral"?

Did this viral video work on you?
