Cheiron Crush is a music video aesthetic that was prevalent from roughly 1997 to 2003. The term was coined by designer and celebutante Steves Peeps in 2021. This aesthetic is named after director Nigel Dick's Pop music video style that dominated the late 90s and early 2000s. This video style co-existed inside the Y2K era. In turn, the name comes from Cheiron Studios, where many pop hits of the era were produced (chiefly by Max Martin and the late Denniz PoP).
