According to experts, there's a scientific explanation behind the gratification we feel when we watch things get unboxed; it activates areas of the brain that involved with "mimetic desire," a subconcious phenomenon during which we imitate the desires of others. An example of this that might sound more familiar to you is when people all start coveting an accessory, let's say, oversized hair clips. Everyone's desire to own a giant hair clip is only creating more desire and demand for them. No wonder they're everywhere.
There's also an element of curiosity; people want to know what's inside the box just as much as the person opening it. We know we do.
The Supergeat community is big on unboxing and we love our monthly subscription boxes like Boxycharm and Allure Beauty Box, so we decided to round up the most satisfying unboxing videos that you guys have reviewed so far.
