The video for Killset's “Jump” parody, directed by Kerry Porter, is steeped in '90s references. From Starter clothes to beepers and even a throwback to O.J. Simpson's 1994 Bronco chase, the golden age vibe is strong in the clip.
“We wanted to cover a song that already had a cool vibe on its own and impart the Killset style into it,” says the band of their remake. “The idea of a bunch of metal guys dressing up like Kris Kross just sounded like way too much fun.”
Killset singer Luca describes the band's video shoot for the Kris Kross cover: “I wrote the script and then we went to thrift stores and bought the biggest jeans they had, Timberland boots, leather woven belts, boomboxes, jerseys, Cross Colours clothes and I had my mom send out my old pager.”
Check out the killer cover, below, as well as the original Kris Kross video.
