May. 5, 2015 Business Insider

Johnnie Lawson is an Irish visual artist who began uploading his videos of relaxing nature scenes to his YouTube channel five years ago.

Today, the 174 videos have been viewed by over 30 million people around the world, from the US to North Korea, all claiming that the peaceful sounds are helping them study, sleep, and concentrate better.

Far and away his most popular video is [this] 8-hour shot of a bridge over the River Bonet near Manorhamilton in Ireland’s County Leitrim, where Lawson himself is from.
