Angelica is a content creator on YouTube. Although the uploads on her account are simply labelled as ASMR videos, all it takes is one viewing to realize that's not what they actually are. A succinct description would be that they are comedy skits performed in a constantly soft-spoken manner that parodies actual ASMR.

As of late 2019, her channel has accumulated nearly 50 million views in four years. Her most popular video (at more than 2.7 million views) is 1300s A.D. "ASMR~ Nun Takes Care of You In Bed {You Have the Plague}", which is Exactly What It Says on the Tin.

If you haven't figured out by now, her content thrives on Surreal Humor.

Tropes that apply to Angelica videos include:

  • Artistic License – History: Her historical roleplays aren't always accurate, but damn if they aren't hilarious.
  • Ax-Crazy: Her characters often are. A few clips promise to help the viewer sleep, through (among other things) 1) a "chill suffocating you to death session," 2) a "relaxing shot to the head," and other soothing forms of violence.
  • Bait-and-Switch: Her videos are consistently done in an ASMR style, but they are not that.
  • Bilingual Bonus: She's Latina. Some of her characters are as well, putting this trope into effect when she speaks Spanish as them.
  • Bright Is Not Good: Don't let the flowers and her own loveliness fool you; the characters she plays are usually deranged.
  • Celebrity Resemblance: She looks a fair amount like Zendaya, and this is played up in a video where she does her "ASMR" as Zendaya's MJ from the new Spider-Man franchise.

  • Cross-Cast Role: She sometimes plays men.
  • No Name Given: She's known mononymously as Angelica. May or may not be her real forename; it's unknown.
  • Pastiche: She always speaks softly, as a real ASMR creator would.
  • Surreal Humor: One of her videos is titled "ASMR~ Dolphin Whisperer Does Your Raccoon Makeup To Invade Raccoon Colony {You're a Dolphin}," which should speak for itself. Watch. To boot, it's ten minutes long.
  • Yandere: In "ASMR~ Romantic Girlfriend Takes Care of You," the girlfriend starts carrying a knife around the 8-minute mark as she romantically argues with her unseen boyfriend.
