"SugarCrash!" is a hyperpop song by musician ElyOtto that gained viral popularity on TikTok in February 2021. The song is associated with two meme formats on the app, with the more popular format, a parody of fancams, featuring a CapCut video effect that highlights the climax of the video.

On November 4th, 2020, TikTok[6] user eda_lysyy_poletel made the earliest found viral TikTok that used the song in combination with a CapCut video effect to highlight a minor detail in an episode of the Haikyu!! anime series (shown below, left).
