Watching A Hot Knife Cut Through Random Objects Is Surprisingly Satisfying
How do you relieve stress at the end of a long day? Sometimes I take a hot bath or drink a cup of soothing peppermint tea. Other times, I tune in to Watch It Melt!
I can’t really explain what’s so satisfying about watching everyday items melt or get sliced in half with a red-hot knife. Much like the ever-popular blackhead extraction and Dr. Pimple Popper videos, melting object videos are mesmerizing, and I’m not the only one who thinks so. Watch It Melt hit the YouTube scene just three months ago, and the channel has already amassed over 130,000 subscribers and almost 16 million views.
The creator of the channel told Daily Mail that he got the idea to melt objects while watching the face melting scene in “Raiders of the Lost Ark.” He also said that he never expected the videos to be so popular or to help people with issues like stress, anxiety, and insomnia.
