Many music videos from the late nineties, six underground by the sneaker pimps being the most salient example to me, have a distinctive cinematographic feel and style to them, with very high contrast (super dark blacks and popping-out, almost oversaturated whites); a lot of murky brown/green and pops of red/blue.

Why was it so prevalent in the late-nineties, and, correct me if I am mistaken, mostly just for music videos? [more inside]
