Aesthetics Wiki

Internet Awesomesauce is an aesthetic that was prevalent from 2008 to 2016. Its style is all about consumerist aesthetics present in those years, particularly those on the Internet. It uses ironic visuals from the early 2010s that could be described as "awesome" or "epic", like animals (particularly cats, unicorns, dogs and dinosaurs), galaxies, junk food, rainbows and laser eyes. Sometimes it also uses visuals that seem chaotic, aggressive or daring, yet manage to give someone a smile through its use of irony and humor.

This aesthetic is heavily influenced by the meme culture that was prevalent during the early stages of the internet. Some of these popular memes include Nyan Cat, Shooting Stars, Doge, Brony-related memes, Epic Face, the "I Can Has Cheezburger?" cat, etc.

This aesthetic was identified and coined by the CARI (Consumer Aesthetics Research Institute) in 2021.[1]
