Make My Video: Kris Kross is centered around making a Kris Kross video. Players would use footage provided in the game to create a music video to either "Jump", "I Missed The Bus", or "Warm It Up."
When the Make My Video series went into development, Digital Pictures operated under the assumption that music video shoots produced a wealth of unused footage, which would serve to populate the series' core gameplay mechanic. However, they soon discovered that this was not the case. Instead, they populated the non-music video footage options with royalty-free videos, including political speeches and black-and-white stock films.
