What Is The 'Glass Bottle Rolling Down Stairs ASMR' Trend?

Back in May 2022, TikToker @lilloalencarr posted a video where he rolls a glass jar down a staircase. The video gained hundreds of thousands of views and the TikToker decided to roll with it, pun intended. Almost all of his content going forward became glass bottle rolling ASMR, with some uploads gaining millions of views.

The trend quickly began to spread across the platform, picking up a lot of steam in May and June 2023. The trend is popular for the same reason any other ASMR trend becomes popular: for many, it's satisfying to listen to and watch.

How Is 'Glass Bottle Rolling ASMR' Used Online?

There's not much that separates one bottle-rolling ASMR video from the next. Each one starts with a person holding a bottle at the top of some stairs, followed by the bottle rolling down the stairs. A lot of the time the bottle smashes at some point in its journey, but sometimes it doesn't, adding a little bit of suspense to each upload.

Some TikTokers are mixing things up by putting interesting things in the bottles, such as Orbeez or marbles or colored sand, adding an extra layer of satisfying content to the videos. Now that the trend has gone viral on TikTok, people across other social media sites are also sharing the videos, recently inspiring a viral tweet about the trend with over 130,000 likes in a day.
