So here's a thing I never thought I'd say...

People on Instagram who sometimes call themselves "slimers" are making "slime" and then posting videos of themselves touching it.

There are a few different types of slime videos. One type features people putting their fingers directly into a bowl or jar to make a popping noise.

Another type features people sticking something that makes noise inside the slime to make a crunch.

The key? Liquid borax and glue.

The trend, which seems to have been successful with the ASMR community, has gotten so big that the #slime hashtag has been used on more than 500,000 photos and videos.
