Pomni Dread Zoom-In is a video caption meme format based on the ending scene of the pilot episode of The Amazing Digital Circus in which the camera zooms in on the main character Pomni as full realization of her situation dawns on her. The scene achieved popularity as a caption format on YouTube and other platforms shortly following the premiere of the series in mid-October 2023.


On October 13th, 2023, pilot episode of the animated dark comedy series The Amazing Digital Circus premiered on YouTube,[1] garnering over 23 million views in ten days. In the final scene of the episode, as characters sit down for a feast, camera slowly zooms in on main character Pomni's face, as she apparently comes to full realization of her bizarre, hopeless and life-altering situation (23:52 second mark).

…because we don't need to eat, drink or sleep in this digital world, so the digital here only gives off the virtual sensation of eating without any of the nutritional benefits.
