About

Cuteness Overload is a reaction face drawn in the style of a rage comic character often used to depict the emotional responses after seeing babies or animals that are deemed adorable, a sad story or a heartwarming moment.

Origin

One of the earliest archived appearances of Cuteness Overload was posted to the /r/Pics subreddit[1] on September 23rd, 2011 as a response to a photo of a dog appearing to drink out of a straw with the caption “i’mma just take a sip okay?” Before it was archive, it recieved more than 8,100 upvotes and 803 points overall.



Spread

On October 1st, 2011, the face was added to the database All The Rage Faces.[3] Four days later, the dog image macro was reposted on the Audi Zine forums[2] in a funny photo thread. In late 2011, Memebase[8] posted its first Cuteness Overload macro depicting a young man’s reaction to rewatching Mustafa’s death scene in The Lion King as an adult.



Rage comics and image macros using the Cuteness Overload character have appeared extensively on We Know Memes[4], the Rage Comics subreddit[5], Cheezburger[6], FunnyJunk[7] and Meme Blender.[9] Additionally, the character has appeared in an advice animal image macro series with emotionally overwhelmed captions. As of May 2013, the Cuteness Overload pages on Quickmeme[10] and Meme Generator[11] have nearly 400 submissions between them.
